The data: coverage, periodicity and timeliness

Coverage characteristics

Data on the value of funding are published as end of month figures in millions of New Zealand dollars. Ratios are published as percentages.




We release data approximately five weeks after the reference month.

Start-date of aggregate statistics

We compile tables L1 and L2 from data required to be reported by registered banks from April 2010, and these are published from that date.

We compile table L3 from data that registered banks are required to report by from March 2011, and it is published from that date.

List of institutions included in published liquidity statistics

All locally incorporated banks are required to provide reports on liquidity to us.

Access by the public

Statistics release calendar

The statistics release calendar provides a long-term plan of scheduled releases. We update and release it on the first working day of the month.

Dissemination of terms and conditions under which official statistics are produced, including confidentiality of individual responses

We provide this information as a service to the public.

We collect, monitor and analyse the data in undertaking our prudential supervisory functions. These operations involve liaising with and monitoring financial institutions to ensure effective implementation of policy and the soundness of the financial system.

Individual bank responses are strictly confidential.

Provision of information about revisions and advance notice of major changes in methodology

Provisional data are italicised. New data, or revised data, are in bold font. Data are deemed provisional when a series is under review. This applies to the summary table only and not Excel files. We generally publish revisions when we are next due to update and release the table. Should we need to make revisions more promptly, we will post a special note. We post any major changes in methodology as a special note.


Dissemination of documentation on methodology and sources used in preparing statistics

Definitions of series are available in the Series description.

Our Liquidity Policy specifies the minimum prudential standards for registered banks, addressing the degree of liquidity risk that they take on and their approach to managing that risk.

View the Liquidity Policy

Dissemination of statistics that support statistical cross-check and provide assurance of reasonableness

We publish summary information on bank funding in the Standard Statistical Return monthly (see S tables).

Registered banks are required to publish Disclosure Statements quarterly. We reproduce summary information from these statements.

Total loans and advances

Total loans and advances (as per BS13) is the figure for loans and advances (net) as reported in the monthly Bank Balance Sheet Survey for the month that is two months prior to the BS13 reporting month.

Total funding

Total funding is the sum of all market and non-market funding.

Non-market funding

Non-market funding means total deposits/debt securities issued by a bank, not falling within the definition of market funding.

Market funding

Market funding is defined as the total of:

  1. deposits/debt securities of a registered bank held by financial institutions or related parties of financial institutions
  2. tradable debt securities issued by a bank not already included in (a) above
  3. any funding received from related parties of a bank not already included in (a) or (b) above
  4. any funding that a bank is unable to or chooses not to allocate between market and non-market funding.

Residual maturity

Residual maturity is the remaining time until the expiration or the repayment of the funding instrument.


The key concept for defining the residency source of funding is the centre of economic interest. An institutional unit or entity is defined as domestic when location exists within the economic territory of the country from which it engages, and intends to continue to engage, in a significant amount of economic activity.


Funding received from an institution or entity with a non-resident withholding tax 'flag' is classified as offshore for the purposes of this report.

Funding received through an agent or nominee, acting on behalf of non-residents, is also identified as offshore funding.
