2020-10-30 – Swiss Financial Accounts: quarterly data published for first time

The Swiss National Bank is expanding its data offering with respect to Switzerland’s financial accounts. It will now publish quarterly as well as annual data, and the time to publication will be shortened from ten to four months.

Today the SNB is releasing quarterly data for the period from Q4 2014 to Q2 2020. Annual data are available for the period 1999 to 2013. The data can be accessed in the form of charts and configurable tables on the SNB’s data portal (data.snb.ch, Table selection/Swiss economic affairs/Financial accounts). In future, the publication of the data will be accompanied by focus articles on selected topics relating to the Swiss financial accounts. The first such publication is planned for April 2021.

The financial accounts form part of Switzerland’s system of national accounts. They show the financial assets and liabilities of the economy’s institutional sectors – non-financial and financial corporations, general government, and households. The financial accounts data are presented as balance sheets for each sector and are broken down by financial instrument. In addition to stocks, information is provided on transactions, capital gains and losses, and statistical changes and reclassifications.
