FSD Capital Flows Database

One of the main challenges for central banks is to monitor capital flows in and out of the country. Moreover, even if each central bank has high-quality information, it is difficult to make cross-country comparisons due to the lack of homogenous criteria for monthly frequency. As Portfolio investment is an important component of the Balance of Payments, the Network coordinates a database on monthly portfolio investment flows. The objective of this initiative is timely and better access to data on capital flows in the region that goes beyond private sources, thereby facilitating cross-country comparisons, monitoring, and research on the evolution of these flows.
