Mr. Meraj Allahrakha (Economist, Financial Institutions Division, Statistics Department, IMF)

Target Audience

Officials at central banks and supervisory agencies for the financial sector responsible for the compilation and dissemination of financial soundness indicators to IMF’s Statistics Department.

Webinar Description

FSIs are an important tool of macro financial analysis, featuring in a number of countries’ Financial Stability Reports, and IMF surveillance work, including Article IV Consultation Reports, Global Financial Stability Reports, and Financial Sector Assessment Programs (FSAPs).This webinar is a hands-on overview of the main changes in the concepts, definitions, data sources and methods for the compilation and dissemination of the new FSI data collection.

Upon completion of this webinar, FSI compilers will be familiar with the structure of the new report forms, reflecting advances in the regulatory framework— most prominently embodied in the Basel III reform—including new definitions and measures of capital and new global liquidity standards, as well as the revised International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) accounting standards. Compilers will also gain a sound understanding of the changes in their respective countries’ historic series and metadata.
