ECB consults on draft recast Regulation on investment fund statistics

18 December 2023

  • ECB launches public consultation on draft recast Regulation on investment fund statistics
  • ECB seeks feedback by 12 February 2024
  • Recast Regulation will improve analytical value of data

The European Central Bank (ECB) is today launching a public consultation on a draft recast ECB Regulation on investment fund statistics. The Regulation has been reviewed with the aim of ensuring the ECB’s statistics remain fit for purpose. The review also takes into account an assessment of the merits of new requirements and the potential costs to reporting agents.

The principal purpose of investment fund statistics is to provide policymakers with a comprehensive and timely picture of developments in the investment fund sector in the euro area. The dataset is published on a monthly basis. The draft recast Regulation introduces additional reporting requirements that allow enhanced analysis of such developments, including features which support other ECB datasets. For example, most data will be collected on a monthly basis and the requirements will include additional breakdowns of assets and liabilities.

The consultation will run until 12 February 2024. The outcome will be taken into account when finalising the recast Regulation. The comments received during the consultation, as well as a feedback statement, will be published in the weeks following its conclusion.

More information on the public consultation and on how to submit comments can be found on the ECB’s website.
