Today the European Central Bank (ECB) is publishing the Dec-2013 Consolidated Banking Data (CBD), a data set that provides statistics about the EU banking system on consolidated basis. It includes statistics on individual EU Member States and the European Union and Euro Area as a whole. It refers to 395 banking groups together with 4193 stand-alone credit institutions, including data for 695 foreign-controlled branches and subsidiaries operating in the EU. This data set includes profitability and efficiency indicators, balance sheet indicators, non-performing loans developments as well as solvency ratios.
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 affiliates of banking groups 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.
