The Securities Holdings Statistics (SHS), collected on a security-by-security basis, provide information on securities held by selected categories of euro area investors, broken down by instrument type, issuer country and further classifications.
The legal basis for collecting SHS data is laid down in Regulation ECB/2012/24 and subsequent amendments.
This Regulation is complemented by Guideline ECB/2013/7 and subsequent amendments, which sets out the procedures to be followed by NCBs when reporting to the ECB.

The SHS by Sector, as published in the Statistical Data Warehouse (SDW), provide information on holdings of securities by euro area resident sectors, e.g. monetary financial institutions or non-financial corporations.
The joint Handbook on Securities Statistics, from the Bank for International Settlements, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund provides the conceptual framework for the compilation and presentation of securities statistics.
It describes the main features of debt and equity securities, looks at institutional units and sectors as issuers and holders of securities, and discusses the statistical recording rules to be applied for use in monetary policy formulation and financial stability analysis.
