The Bank of Finland collects statistical data on credit institutions. The RATI survey covers required data for the following: ECB’s and national balance sheet and interest rate statistics, Statistics Finland’s outstanding credit statistics, balance of payments and financial accounts statistics, and the Bank for International Settlement’s (BIS) banking statistics. Under the ECB regulation, the data can also be used for other-than-statistical purposes. Balance sheet data are also used to calculate credit institutions’ reserve requirements. The Financial Supervisory Authority (FIN-FSA) has the right to use the statistical data for supervisory purposes.
On this site we will report changes in MFI data collection affecting both RATI and KOTI reporters and taking effect at the beginning of 2014.
