Abstract

Recent enhancements to the BIS international banking statistics have led to improvements in data quality and coverage, with more information available about the instrument type, counterparty country by bank nationality and counterparty sector of banks' international positions. This study uses mirror data techniques to examine those data elements that are common both within the various international banking datasets and between these datasets and other external financial statistics such as the Balance of Payments, International Investment Position, Coordinated Portfolio Investment Survey and the BIS International Debt Securities Statistics. We exploit the conceptual relationships between these data sources to check data validity at an aggregate level. The paper thus provides a road map for users to enhance their analyses using mirror data concepts.

International Settlement
The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is an international company limited by shares owned by central banks which "fosters international monetary and financial cooperation and serves as a bank for central banks". The BIS carries out its work through subcommittees, the secretariats it hosts and through an annual general meeting of all member banks. It also provides banking services, but only to central banks and other international organizations. It is based in Basel, Switzerland, with representative offices in Hong Kong and Mexico City.
