Consolidated Banking Statistics (BIS)
Name of survey
Country breakdown of items on the asset and liability sides of the balance sheet as well as off-balance-sheet items; recording of local claims and liabilities of subsidiaries and branches; breakdown by sector, by residual maturity, and by collateral. The survey follows the requirements of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS).
Type of survey
Partial sample survey
The reporting obligation applies to banks contained in the reporting population of the survey on locational banking statistics which are either Swiss-controlled or whose foreign parent company has no banking licence (e.g. holding companies or insurance groups). Liechtenstein banks are treated in the same way as Swiss-controlled banks. Subsidiaries and branches of Liechtenstein banks domiciled in Switzerland have no reporting obligation as they are consolidated by the parent company.
