Correction 2016-05-02. The correction refers to the sector distribution of equity and investment fund shares for Swedish investments abroad in Q1 2015.
Liabilities for sector MFI are classified as deposits instead of loans as of first quarter of 2015.
1 direct investment
Starting from the reference period Q1 2015, many holding companies have been reclassified from sector group non-financial companies to sector group other financial institutions. The reason is due to requirements from international regulations. The reclassifications have major impact on the sector distributed assets and liabilities within direct investments, since reported companies for the direct investment survey often are holding companies. Furthermore, holding companies often provides consolidated direct investment data and the reported values refer not only to the reported company but also to non-financial subsidiaries within the business group. The reclassification means that assets and liabilities of direct investments for the sector other financial institutions now shows higher values compared if each company within a group themselves reported data to Statistics Sweden.
