Today the European Central Bank (ECB) is publishing the June-2012 Consolidated Banking Data (CBD), a data set that provides various statistics about the EU banking system on consolidated basis. It includes statistics on both individual EU Member States and the EU as a whole. It refers to 430 banking groups together with 4,216 stand-alone credit institutions, including data for 996 foreign-controlled branches and subsidiaries operating in the EU. This data set includes profitability and efficiency indicators, balance sheet indicators relating to banks’ funding sources, non-performing loans developments as well as solvency ratios.
This semi-annual dataset comprises selected data points taken from the more comprehensive annual data collection published on http://sdw.ecb.europa.eu/browse.do?node=71390 (reference data) and http://www.ecb.europa.eu/press/pr/date/2012/html/pr120823.en.html (press release).
The CBD data are separately reported for domestic (broken down into small, medium-sized and large) banking groups. Information is also provided on foreign-controlled institutions active in EU countries. The CBD series are available on a cross-border and cross-sector basis, where “cross-border” refers to branches and subsidiaries located outside the domestic market and “cross-sector” to branches and subsidiaries of banks that can be classified as other financial institutions. Insurance companies are not included in the consolidation perimeter.
The Consolidated Banking Data are also available in the ECB Statistical Data Warehouse. The data and more information about the methodology behind the data compilation are available on the ECB’s website.
