- Financial corporations are corporations which are principally engaged in
financial intermediation or in auxiliary financial activities. Financial
corporations intermediate between parties that possess funds and parties
that need funds.
In the classification of borrowing party, financial corporations are
subdivided in monetary financial institutions, insurance corporations,
investment funds and other non-monetary financial institutions.
- Monetary financial institutions
- The main characteristic of monetary financial institutions is that they
receive currency and deposits. The part of the liabilities in currency and
deposits with others than monetary financial institutions is called money.
The magnitude of money plays an important role in the decisions of the
European Central Bank to change the interest rate. On the assets side
monetary financial institutions make use of the received deposits by
granting loans and buying securities. Monetary financial institutions are:
De Nederlandsche Bank N.V., universal banks, savings banks, the Rabobank
and its associates.
- Insurance institutions
- Total of pension funds and insurance corporations.
- Investment funds
- Investment funds collect funds from the general public by offering shares
and invest these funds in shares, bonds, short-term securities, loans,
real estate and deposits. Investment funds come under the Wet toezicht
beleggingsinstellingen (1990, Staatsblad 380), but with the exclusion of
investment funds which shares are possessed for over 50 percent by one
insurance corporation. In the source for investment funds supervisor De
Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) implemented far-reaching changes early 2009. The
most important change is the extension of the population with
institutional investment funds, meaning investment funds which equity is
in possession of one or a limited number of institutional investors
(pension funds, insurance corporations or other investment funds). The
National accounts corrected the break because of its revision policy. A
corresponding correction has been applied here. The correction excludes
the balance sheet figures at the end of 2008 of the then existing
institutional investment funds. However, balance sheet changes as from
2009 of these funds as well as new institutional investment funds are
included in the figures.
