The Financial Crisis and Information Gaps
The IMF Statistics Department (STA) and the Financial Stability Board (FSB) Secretariat, in close collaboration with other international institutions, are leading the work of implementing the 20 recommendations identified in the report The Financial Crisis and Information Gaps to address data gaps revealed by the global crisis. Requested by the G-20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors, endorsed by the IMFC, and informed by consultations with national authorities, this work supports bilateral and multilateral surveillance of the financial sector, understanding financial interconnectedness and assessment of risks in the financial sector. Progress is being made through collaborative and cooperative approaches with national authorities and the international institutions members of the Inter-Agency Group on Economic and Financial Statistics (the BIS, the ECB, Eurostat, the IMF (chair), the OECD, the UN, and the World Bank). The reports on this page provide the progress of the G-20 Data Gaps Initiative.
