The International Investment Position (IIP) is a quarterly (monthly as an indicator) statistical statement that shows the stock value of financial assets and liabilities of residents of an economy from non-residents, and financial assets kept as gold at a point in time.

The difference between total financial assets and total financial liabilities is the net IIP. In other words, the net position of total claims of Türkiye on non-residents vis-a-vis total liabilities of Türkiye to non-residents is the net IIP. The net IIP may either be positive or negative.
