Published on 21 March 2018

1. MFI holdings of securities collection update – Form AS

Following consultations with a sample of potential reporters, the Bank’s Data and Statistics Division has finalised fields and definitions for a new collection of securities holdings called Form AS. Related documentation can be found on the Data Collection page under ‘New and upcoming’.

Form AS is a quarterly security-by-security collection that comes into effect from Q1 2019 with first submission in April 2019. The collection will be quarterly but the data includes three ‘Closing Volume’ fields, which will be populated with the closing volume of each security as at the end of each month in the quarter. The purpose of the collection is to satisfy ESA 2010 (European System of Accounts 2010) requirements, and will contribute to the UK’s intention to meet the IMF’s SDDS+ (Special Data Dissemination Standard +).

A previous Green Notice relating to this collection was issued on 31st August 2017.

A Statistical Notice will follow in due course when the collection method has been finalised. The reporting population for Form AS is based on a sample and those institutions required to report Form AS have been notified directly.

If you have any queries regarding this new collection, please contact Rebecca Jones (Tel. +44 20 3461 4974, dsdsecurities@bankofengland.co.uk)
