Key Charts - Non-Bank Financial Intermediaries
Non-Bank Financial Intermediaries Have Grown Rapidly Worldwide
Global non-bank financial intermediary assets were almost half the size of global commercial bank assets in 2012, according to the Financial Stability Board. (Non-bank financial intermediaries had assets of $71.2 trillion vs. $136 trillion for commercial banks). Both sectors grew at roughly the same rate from 2002 to 2012 - about 173 percent.
Note: The Financial Stability Board (FSB) - a G-20 group that promotes the implementation of effective regulatory, supervisory and other financial sector policies - broadly defines the non-bank financial sector as a system of credit intermediation that involves entities and activities fully or partially outside the regular banking system. The data for global banking and non-bank financial institutions are based on countries that are members of the FSB and the euro area.
