Version - October 5, 2005
                                                                 INFORMATION FRAMEWORK
                                            FINANCIAL ACTIVITIES IN INTERNATIONAL AND OFFSHORE FINANCIAL CENTERS

Important Information for the Completion of the Information Framework Template Addressed to the Respondents of the Information Framework Exercise

          1 Jurisdictions are requested to complete the Main Page including the contact information.
          2 Jurisdictions are requested to provide data on the variables listed in the "Provided to IMF" column in the Information Framework with the following
            exceptions:
          a Jurisdictions who provide data to BIS and have authorized the BIS to transmit the relevant data to the IMF may choose not to complete worksheet
             "Banking Activity III (Q)" in order to avoid duplication.
          b Jurisdictions that have sectoral financial activity below the thresholds set out below may choose to provide only the indicators listed
            under the "Dissemination" column in the Information Framework, which correspond to the blue-highlighted cells in this template.
                                                          Banking - Total Assets below $5 billion
                                                          Insurance - Annual Gross Premiums below $100 million
                                                          Collective Investment Schemes - Total Value of Assets below $5 billion.
            However, these jurisdictions are encouraged to provide additional information if available.
            The Information Framework document is available at                           http://www.imf.org/external/np/pp/eng/2005/022505a.htm
          3 Frequency of data submission is either annual or quarterly, referred to by A or Q.
          4 Jurisdictions may also choose to provide additional optional elements for the banking and insurance sectors listed under
            the worksheets - "Banking Supplemental (A)", "Banking Sup. Underlying Dta (A)", and "Insurance Supplemental (A)".
          5 While it is recommended that aggregate (offshore-onshore) statistics be provided, jurisdictions may choose to provide separate statistics for
            the offshore and onshore sectors. The option should be indicated in the "Main Page". If separate statistics are provided for the offshore
            and onshore sectors, a separate template must be submitted for each of them.
          6 To report data for additional years please complete separate templates for each year and submit each one individually.
          7 To report revised data please complete and submit a new template.
          8 The definitions and instructions for the compilation of the Information Framework are provided in the "Definitions and Instructions" worksheet.
            These definitions and instructions should not be regarded as exhaustive and should be used in conjunction with the references indicated.
            Where the definitions or the methodology used to compile the data differ significantly from the guidance and definitions recommended,
            please report those deviations in the "Comments" section provided at the end of each data set.
          9 If you have any questions regarding the completion of the Information Framework, please e-mail the Monetary and Financial Systems
            Department at mfdif@imf.org or call (202) - 623 - 8439 to speak with a member of the Information Framework team.


             The following provides a list of practical issues that will guide the compilers in completing the attached form:
             Exchange rates                            The Information Framework uses the US dollar as the reference currency for its statistics, unless otherwise specified.
                                                       All positions in other currencies must therefore be converted into US dollars. For the sake of consistency and comparability,
                                                       the positions should be converted into US dollars at the market exchange rate prevailing on the reference date.
             Timing of financial statements            It is recommended that data be aggregated based on the same reporting date, preferably end-year (unaudited financial
                                                       statements can be used if audited statements are unavailable at that time). However, if end-year or same-date financial
                                                       statements are unavailable, please aggregate data using the statements for different months of a calendar year and indicate
                                                       the month(s) to which most of the financial statements refer.
             Zero values                               Zero values are observations actually collected. They should not be confused with missing values.
                                                       Zero values refer to collected data which are observed at zero level or below the level of relevance for the scale
                                                       of the templates (any data below the 0.5 unit).
             Not available or missing data             Not available values are data items which are not collected. A missing value does not mean that the actual
                                                       observation is "0". It actually refers to a lack of data for that variable at a certain point in time.
                                                       Missing values should be indicated by leaving the cell blank.
             Rounding issues                           Decimals are rounded to the next unit whenever decimals are equal to or larger than 0.5; otherwise they are
                                                       rounded to zero ("0").
             Totals                                    In general, totals of the sum of related sub-items are calculated from the components. Cells containing predefined formula
                                                       are indicated with a bold border. However, the template allows for the totals to be entered manually if respondents
                                                       wish to do so or the components are not available. The compilers can input the total by simply overwriting the formula.
                                                       If compilers, for any reason, want to enter a different total to the one calculated by the summing formula,
                                                       they can do so, and attach an explanation in the "Comments" section of the corresponding worksheet.
             Comments                                  If you are unable to provide a breakdown, please indicate in the "Comments" section of the corresponding worksheet.
             Links to other workbooks                  Do not link the reported template to other workbooks.
                  Definitions and instructions for the compilation of the Information Framework

The definitions provided here are recommended for compiling the data for the information framework. While the banking sector
definitions listed below are already widely used, the insurance, collective investment schemes, company and trust service providers
sectors may have distinct characteristics across jurisdictions that might not have been taken into consideration. Where the definitions
or the methodology used to compile the data in your jurisdiction differ significantly from the guidance and definitions recommended
in this Framework document and references therein, please report those deviations along with the data.



Line item                                                                Notes
                                                               I. Information Framework
                A. Banking

A2              Banks – all deposit taking institutions located in each jurisdiction whose business it is to receive deposits, and/or
                close substitutes for deposits, and grant credits or invest in securities on their own account (BIS, 2003).
A4              Shell Banks – Banks that have no physical presence (i.e. meaningful mind and management) in the country where
                they are incorporated and licensed, and are not affiliated to any financial services group that is subject to effective
                consolidated supervision (BCBS, 2003).
A5              Restricted banks - Banks that restrict their business to select clients or company, usually one client or company.
A6              In some cases there can be several tiers of parent institutions, i.e. in addition to the parent of a local bank in a second
                jurisdiction, there could be a parent of a parent in a third jurisdiction and so on. In such cases, please provide the
                name of the country where the ultimate parent institution of the branch or subsidiary licensed in the reporting
                jurisdiction is incorporated and supervised (on a consolidated basis). For illustration, if a subsidiary/branch ―Z‖
                located in the reporting jurisdiction ―C‖ is owned by an institution ―Y‖ in a foreign jurisdiction ―B‖, and ―Y‖ in turn
                is owned by a parent institution ―X‖ in a foreign jurisdiction ―A‖, then jurisdiction ―A‖ should be reported as the
                country where the supervisor of parent of the subsidiary/branch ―Z‖ is located.
                Subsidiaries - banks over which a foreign parent deposit taker or a bank holding company has established control (is
                able to determinate general corporate policy by choosing or removing appropriate directors so as to obtain benefits
                from the activities of the corporation; control is unambiguously established through ownership of more than half of
                the voting shares or otherwise controlling more than half of the shareholder voting power) (IMF, 2004).
                Branches - a place of business which forms a legally dependent part of a bank and which carries out directly all or
                some of the transactions inherent in the business of banks (IMF, 2004).
A12-A27         External Positions (Assets / Liabilities / Deposits / Loans) – financial claims or liabilities vis-à-vis non-residents in
                domestic and foreign currency (BIS, 2003).
A12, A14,       If the jurisdiction is a BIS reporting jurisdiction, this data is published by the BIS.

A13, A15,       Items broken down by individual countries: If the jurisdiction is a BIS reporting jurisdiction, this data is provided to,
A17, A19,       but not published by, the BIS.
A21, A23,
A25, A27
                Off-balance Sheet
A29             Guarantees, commitments, and other credit substitutes – traditional off-balance-sheet exposures, where a bank
                has underwritten the obligations of a third party and currently stands behind the risk (guarantees) or has committed
                itself to a future transaction that would normally result in the banks acquiring a credit exposure (either an asset or
                possibly a guarantee) at some future date (commitments) (For further clarifications, please see BCBS, 1986).

                Derivatives Contracts
A30             Derivatives contracts – contracts whose value depends on a reference rate or the value of an underlying asset or
                index. Derivatives contracts could be further broken down into over-the-counter (OTC) contracts and exchange-
                traded contracts and into contracts held for trading and contracts held for other than trading (For further clarifications,
                please see BCBS, 1994).
                Type of value to be reported for derivatives contracts – it is recommended that, notional amounts and market
                values (where available) be provided to the IMF. Gross positive market values and gross negative market values are to
                be provided where available.
                Nominal or notional amounts – the face value of the contracts (For further clarifications please see BIS, 2003).
                Gross positive market value - the sum of the replacement values of all contracts that are in a current gain position to
                the reporter at current market prices (and therefore, if they were settled immediately, would represent claims on
                counterparties) (For further clarifications please see BIS, 2003 and BCBS et al, 1998).
                Gross negative market value - the sum of the values of all contracts that have a negative value on the reporting date
                (i.e. those that are in a current loss position and therefore, if they were settled immediately, would represent liabilities
                of the dealer to its counterparties) (For further clarifications please see BIS, 2003 and BCBS et al, 1998).
A33             Fees and commissions - cover such services as payment services; intermediary services (e.g., those associated with
                lines of credit, letters of credit, etc.,); services related to transactions in securities (e.g., brokerage fees, placements
                and underwriting of new issues, arrangement of swaps and other financial derivatives, security lending, etc.); and
                services related to asset management (e.g., portfolio management, safe-custody) (IMF, 2004).
A35             Asset Under Management – Assets legally the property of customers and other parties (e.g., beneficiaries of trusts)
                but managed by the bank, sometimes on the basis of discretion in the choice of investments (BCBS, 1986). These
                include assets held in fiduciary accounts (i.e. items which are not included on the bank's balance sheet) over which
                the institution may or may not have investment discretion. Custodial activities should not be included in assets under
                management.
                B. Insurance

B             Insurance company – a licensed legal entity which underwrites insurance (IAIS, 2004). (Insurance intermediaries
              such as independent intermediaries/ brokers and agents are not covered by this definition).
              Insurance company branch – a company’s establishment which is not a separate legal entity and which is situated in
              a jurisdiction other than the home jurisdiction of that company (IAIS, 2004).
B3, B12, B20, <Whole> life insurance - insurance payable to a beneficiary at the death of the insured wherever that occurs:
B28           premiums may be payable for a specified number of years (limited-payment life) or for life (straight life) (IAIS, 2004).

B3, B4, B12, If an insurance company does both life and non-life business, please report it only in the category in which it receives
B13, B20,     the highest proportion of premiums and indicate the number of composite companies included in each type.
B21, B28, B29

B5, B14, B22, Reinsurance - a reinsurance contract is an insurance contract between one insurer or pure reinsurer (the reinsurer)
B30           and another insurer or pure insurer (the cedant) to indemnify against losses on one or more contracts issued by the
              cedant in exchange for a consideration (the premium) (IAIS, 2004).
              Reinsurance / captives: To the extent that the last two categories overlap i.e. there are captive companies that are
              reinsurance, please indicate as a subcategory of captives i.e. captives – reinsurance.
B6, B15, B23, Captive insurer - an insurance company established by a parent firm for the purpose of insuring the exposures of the
B31           parent or its affiliates (IAIS, 2004).
B8, B17, B25 Captives that provide third party insurance: If a captive provides both third party and non-third party insurance, please
              include it in this category only if it derives the highest proportion of its premiums from third party insurance.
              Third-Party Insurance – liability insurance, so called because it undertakes to pay to a third party sums which the

                                          II. Supplemental Information on Optional Basis
      AO. Banking

AO1   Financial Soundness Indicators (FSIs) -
      It is recommended that two sets of FSIs be compiled. (i) On a cross-border consolidated basis for all domestically
      incorporated deposit-takers, that is domestically-controlled deposit-takers and the local subsidiaries of foreign deposit-
      takers, consolidated with their own branches and deposit-taking subsidiaries (if any), and for local branches of foreign-
      deposit takers. However, the relevance of some FSIs, such as the capital adequacy indicators, would depend upon the
      nature of the funding of the branch—whether it has stand-alone capital or is simply funded from the head office
      through inter-bank deposits. (ii) On a cross-border consolidated basis for domestically-controlled deposit takers (See
      Chapter 5 of IMF, 2004 for detailed explanations of terms used above).

AO2   Capital Adequacy Ratios
      Regulatory capital to risk-weighted assets - The banking sector – level indicator is calculated by (1) aggregating data
      on regulatory capital[1] for the reporting population as the numerator; (2) aggregating risk-weighted assets for the
      reporting population as the denominator; and (3) dividing (1) by (2) (BCBS, 1988).
      Regulatory Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets – The banking sector – level indicator is calculated by (1)
      aggregating data on Tier 1 capital (core capital)[2] for the reporting population as the numerator; (2) aggregating risk-
      weighted assets for the reporting population as the denominator; and (3) dividing (1) by (2) (BCBS, 1988).
AO3   Return on Assets (ROA) - Return on assets is one of the most commonly used measures of profitability. It is
      calculated by dividing net income (gross income less gross expenses) by the average value of assets over the same
      period (IMF, 2004). As a minimum, the average value of assets can be calculated by taking the average of the
      beginning- and end-period positions, but compilers are encouraged to use the most frequent observations available to
      calculate the average.
AO4   Return on Equity (ROE) – Return on equity is calculated by dividing net income (gross income less gross expenses)
      by the average value of capital over the same period. As a minimum, the denominator can be calculated by taking the
      average of the beginning- and end-period positions, but compilers are encouraged to use the most frequent
      observations available to calculate the average. The preferred definition of net income is net income (before
      extraordinary items and taxes) as this provides an indication of net operating income. Capital is measured as total
      capital and reserves and, for cross-border consolidated data, also Tier 1 capital (IMF, 2004).
AO5   Liquid Assets to Total Assets Ratio – provides an indicator of the liquidity available to meet expected and
      unexpected demands for cash. The indicator is calculated by taking the core measure of liquid assets as the numerator,
      and total assets as denominator. The core liquid assets comprise currency and deposits and other financial assets that
      are available either on demand or within three-months or less (although deposit takers deposits and other nontraded
      claims with other deposit-takers included in the reporting population are excluded) (IMF, 2004).

AO6   Liquid Assets to Short-Term Liabilities – is intended to capture the liquidity mismatch of assets and liabilities,
      providing an indication of the extent to which deposit-takers could meet short-term withdrawal of funds without
      facing liquidity problems. The indicator is calculated by taking the core measure of liquid assets (numerator) and the
      short-term liabilities (denominator). The short-term liabilities are defined as the short-term element of deposit-takers’
      debt liabilities and the net (short-term, if possible) market value of the financial derivatives position (IMF, 2004).

AO7   Foreign Currency Exposure (measured through the Net open position in foreign exchange to capital)
      Net open position in foreign exchange – The sum of the following items: net position in on-balance sheet foreign
      currency debt instruments; net notional positions in financial derivatives; on-balance sheet holdings of foreign
      currency equity assets; net future foreign currency income and expenses not yet accrued but already fully hedged;
      foreign currency guarantees and similar instruments that are certain to be called and are likely to be irrecoverable; and
      depending upon the national commercial accounting practice, any other item representing a profit/loss in foreign
      currencies of the foreign currencies positions set out in a single unit of account (IMF, 2004 definition based on the
      Basel Capital Accord).
      Net open position in foreign exchange to capital – The net open position in foreign exchange as previously defined
      divided by the aggregate capital (Tier 1) (IMF, 2004).
      BO. Insurance


BO    Insurance company branches: Where applicable, please provide data on branches.
      Special Purpose Reinsurance Vehicles (SPRVs) or similar entities set up to facilitate the financing of insurance risk
      by the issue of bonds to the capital market.
BO10                Equity capital (share capital)- potential surplus resulting from an evaluation based on the principle of
                    lower–of–cost–or–market–value as long as the market values exceed the purchase prices of the assets. This item may
                    correspond to the revaluation reserve if assets are valued on the basis of the current market price (IAIS, 2004).

BO11                Subordinated loans – loans (liabilities) that rank after the claims of all other creditors and to be paid, in the event of
                    liquidation or bankruptcy, only after all other debts have been met (...) (IAIS, 2004).
BO12                Technical provision - amount set aside on the balance sheet to meet liabilities arising out of insurance contracts,
                    including claims provision (whether reported or not), provision for unearned premiums, provision for unexpired risks,
                    life assurance provision and other liabilities related to life insurance contracts (e.g. premium deposits, savings
                    accumulated over the term of with–profit policies) (IAIS, 2004).
BO14                Profit reserve - amounts, i.e. bonuses and rebates that are intended for policyholders or contract beneficiaries if such
                    amounts have not been credited to policyholders or contract beneficiaries or included in a fund for future
                    appropriations (IAIS, 2004).

     [1] The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has developed a specific regulatory definition of capital (Tier 1 +Tier 2 +Tier 3) that is used as the numerator in its official regulatory
     capital adequacy ratio. All internationally active banks are expected to have regulatory capital of at least 8 % of a measure of risk-weighted assets. National supervisors may require a
     higher ratio, and have some leeway in establishing the specific standards for their country.
     [2] Tier 1 capital consists of equity capital and disclosed reserves that are considered freely available to meet claims against the bank.

* For the convenience of the jurisdictions participating in the Coordinated Compilation Exercise (CCE) for Financial Soundness Indicators (FSIs), this template
reproduces the template used in the CCE for FSIs.
1/ For the indicators reported in Table 7, the reference date for stock data is December 31, YYYY and the reference period for flow data is year ending December 31, YYYY. If these
reference date and period are not applicable to certain indicators, the actual reference period should be specified in footnotes to be added by the jurisdiction authorities.
2/ Please type in the "Footnote No." column when adding a footnote to provide additional information as requested or as deemed necessary by the jurisdiction authorities.
3/ Column 1 is used for data on ratios if the data in both the numerator and denominator of the ratio are compiled on a domestically-controlled, cross border consolidated basis
(DCCB).
4/ Column 2 is used for data on ratios if the data in both the numerator and denominator of the ratio are compiled on a domestic consolidated basis (DC).
5/ Column 3 is used if one or both underlying data in the numerator and denominator are compiled on a basis other than DCCB or DC. If an FSI is compiled on more than one
consolidation basis, and these bases are different from DCCB or DC, then column 3 is used to report the FSI that is most useful in the assessment of the soundness of the financial
system of the jurisdiction. An option menu for different consolidations is built into the heading of Column 3 with the following options:
DCCBS=Domestically controlled, cross-border and cross-sector; DCCS=Domestic consolidated, cross-sector; CBDI=Cross-border for all domestically incorporated; CBCSDI=Cross-
border and cross-sector for all domestically incorporated; FCCB=Resident foreign controlled, cross-border; FCCBS=Resident foreign controlled, cross-border and cross-sector;
O=Other.
For jurisdictions participating in the Information Framework it is recommended that data be consolidated on a cross-border consolidated basis for all domestically incorporated deposit-
takers, that is domestically-controlled and the local subsidiaries of foreign deposit-takers, consolidated with their own branches and deposit-taking subsidiaries (if any), and for local
branches of foreign-deposit takers. This is equivalent to CBDI plus local branches of foreign deposit-takers (represented by Blocks 1a, 1b, 1c, 2a, 2b, 2c, and 3 in Table 5.1 of the
Compilation Guide). If chosen, please select "O" in the drop-down menu.

* For the convenience of the jurisdictions participating in the Coordinated Compilation Exercise (CCE) for Financial Soundness Indicators (FSIs), this template
reproduces the template used in the CCE for FSIs.
1/ For the indicators reported in Table 8, the reference date for stock data is December 31, YYYY and the reference period for flow data is year ending December 31, YYYY. If
these reference date and period are not applicable to certain indicators, the actual reference period should be specified in footnotes to be added by the jurisdiction authorities.

2/ Please type in the "Footnote No." column when adding a footnote to provide additional information as requested or as deemed necessary by the jurisdiction authorities.

3/ Column 1 is used for data on ratios if the data in both the numerator and denominator of the ratio are compiled on a domestically-controlled, cross border consolidated basis
(DCCB).
4/ Column 2 is used for data on ratios if the data in both the numerator and denominator of the ratio are compiled on a domestic consolidated basis (DC).
5/ Column 3 is used if one or both underlying data in the numerator and denominator are compiled on a basis other than DCCB or DC. If an FSI is compiled on more than one
consolidation basis, and these bases are different from DCCB or DC, then column 3 is used to report the FSI that is most useful in the assessment of the soundness of the
financial system of the jurisdiction. An option menu for different consolidations is built into the heading of Column 3 with the following options:
DCCBS=Domestically controlled, cross-border and cross-sector; DCCS=Domestic consolidated, cross-sector; CBDI=Cross-border for all domestically incorporated;
CBCSDI=Cross-border and cross-sector for all domestically incorporated; FCCB=Resident foreign controlled, cross-border; FCCBS=Resident foreign controlled, cross-border and
cross-sector; O=Other.
For jurisdictions participating in the Information Framework it is recommended that data be consolidated on a cross-border consolidated basis for all domestically incorporated
deposit-takers, that is domestically-controlled and the local subsidiaries of foreign deposit-takers, consolidated with their own branches and deposit-taking subsidiaries (if any), and
for local branches of foreign-deposit takers. This is equivalent to CBDI plus local branches of foreign deposit-takers (represented by Blocks 1a, 1b, 1c, 2a, 2b, 2c, and 3 in Table
5.1 of the Compilation Guide). If chosen, please select "O" in the drop-down menu.
6/ There is a need to indicate the specification of the data series used for compiling certain FSIs. For those FSIs, jurisdiction authorities should use the option menu built into the
report form (in the cell next to the broad descriptor of the relevant underlying data series) to select the preferred specification. The mentioned data series and their specification
options are as follows:
• Capital: a) total capital and reserves, b) total regulatory capital, c) regulatory Tier 1 capital, d) narrow capital and reserves
• Net income: a) before extraordinary items and taxes, b) after extraordinary items and taxes
• Liquid assets: a) core measure, b) broad measure.

    1/ CIS incorporated/registered in the jurisdiction, i.e., any CIS set up/established in the jurisdiction according to the laws and regulations in place,
    regardless of its legal form or structure.
    2/ The definition of a public offer or public promotion varies across jurisdictions. While we recommend that you categorize the CIS based on the
    broad definitions above, if such a classification is not easily applicable, please submit the information according to your own definitions of public and
    private CIS, and explain in the comments section what types of CIS are included in each category, that is, please provide your own definition with the
    submitted data.
    3/ Funds investing primarily in other funds. Given the fact that funds of funds invest in other funds, the breakdown “excluding funds of funds” is
    requested in order to avoid double counting. Funds of funds may invest in individual securities, and therefore the breakdown “including funds of
    funds” is also requested. If your jurisdiction has master-feeder structures, where both the master and the feeder are located in your jurisdiction, then
    the feeder should be excluded to avoid double counting.
    4/ Following IOSCO principles, we recommend that value based (that is marking financial assets to market or using market prices where these are
    available and reliable) reporting is used. However if mark to market valuation is not requested in your jurisdiction, please submit the data based on
    the valuation rules in place in your jurisdiction.



    Comments: It is not possible to complete Column c10 because of differing financial year ends for the funds (i.e. we collect
    this data at year ed of the concerned fund, not at a particular date). Public means offered to all investors, while Private
    means only offered to high net worth individuals and private investors. We only have one fund of funds.
