Update on the Financial Soundness Indicators Reference Group (FSIRG) Meeting
Representatives from 32 countries and 10 international organizations attended the meeting. The FSIRG's Summary of Key Points and Conclusions has been posted publicly. Based on this document, the IMF's Statistics Department (STA) has developed a work program on FSIs that will culminate with the production of a revised FSIs Compilation Guide (Guide) expected by the end of calendar year 2015. It is envisaged that the revised Guide will address methodological and data compilation issues for newly added FSIs and other modifications to the current list of FSIs, as reported to the IMF's Executive Board in November 2013 (see Board Paper Modifications to the Current List of Financial Soundness Indicators). The FSIRG and the broader community of national authorities of countries that are regular FSIs reporters to STA will remain closely engaged throughout this process.
