Financial Soundness Indicators

Financial Soundness Indicators (FSIs) represent the IMF’s system of indicators characterizing current financial health and soundness of deposit-taking corporations in relation to other sectors of the economy. The purpose of calculating and disseminating FSIs is to assess and survey financial systems with a view to enhancing financial stability.

The calculation of FSIs follows the methodology compliant with the recommendations set forth in the IMF’s edition of the Financial Soundness Indicators: Compilation Guide. (IMF, 2006).

Indicators for deposit-taking corporations represent the main component of the FSIs system. The core set of FSIs for deposit-taking corporations (12 indicators) and 20 indicators of the encouraged set are calculated and published by the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus on a quarterly basis.

FSIs that are calculated by the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus and accompanying metadata are posted on the IMF’s website in the Internet.
