The BIS-Consolidated Banking Statistics (CBS) aim to classify quarterly data on resident banks’ international financial claims on non-resident banks by debtor country, remaining maturity and sector of the borrower. While claims of domestic banks include the claims of their branches abroad, foreign banks’ claims include only their claims on residents in their home country.
BIS-Locational Banking Statistics (LBS) are produced by the CBRT using data from resident banks operating in Turkey in line with the definitions, scope and classifications determined by the BIS for such statistics.
The tables of this statistics group are comprised of the banking sector’s claims on and liabilities to non-residents, as well as claims on and liabilities to residents in foreign currency. The data are presented by selected country and country groups as well as a breakdown by total banking and non-banking sectors.
