Consolidated banking statistics

Updated 27 October 2023

The BIS has removed economic country groupings from the statistical global tables on the BIS public website. BIS statistical commentaries and other BIS publications occasionally use country groupings for analytical purposes. From December 2022, the country groupings advanced economies (AEs) and emerging market and developing economies (EMDEs) used in statistical commentaries have been aligned with the country classification in the BIS Annual Economic Report, as detailed here. The economies previously classified as “Offshore centres” have been reallocated to these two groups. For a methodology for identifying financial centres, see P Pogliani and P Wooldridge, “Cross-border financial centres”, BIS Working Papers, no 1035, July 2022.
