The European Banking Authority (EBA) published today an updated guidance on how to compile and report to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) the Financial Soundness Indicators (FSI) based on EBA data. FSIs provide insight into the financial health and soundness of countries’ financial institutions as well as corporate and household sectors, thus supporting the economic and financial stability analysis.

This update takes stock of the additional experience gathered by the EBA with available data after the publication of the latest IMF FSI Guide in 2019.

The EBA guidance note provides a mapping of IMF FSI indicators to EBA supervisory reporting data, ensuring a harmonised methodology across the EU when compiling and reporting FSIs to the IMF. This updated mapping includes also additional metadata recommendations, which EU national authorities should consider when reporting country-level FSI to the IMF.
