Description topics

Assets
Total
Monetary gold and special drawing rights
The monetary gold and special drawing rights category consists of two subcategories:
- monetary gold
- special drawing rights
Total
Monetary gold
Monetary gold includes all gold, which is not intended for industrial purposes and not held in the form of valuables. Monetary gold can only be held by the Dutch Central Bank (DNB).
Special drawing rights (SDRs)
SDRs are international reserve assets created by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and which are allocated to its members to supplement existing reserve assets. This transaction only exists for DNB.
Currency and deposits
Currency is notes and coins that are issued or authorised by monetary authorities. Deposits are standardised, non-negotiable contracts with the public at large, offered by deposit-taking corporations and, in some cases, by central government as debtors, and allowing the placement and the later withdrawal of the principal amount by the creditor. Deposits usually involve the debtor giving back the full principal amount to the investor.
Total
Currency
Currency consists of notes and coins in circulation that are commonly used to make payments.
Transferable deposits
Transferable deposits are deposits exchangeable for currency on demand, at par, and which are directly usable for making payments by cheque, draft, giro order, direct debit/credit, or other direct payment facilities, without penalty or restriction.
Savings deposits and other deposits
Savings deposits and other deposits are all the savings of individuals and deposits (in euros and foreign currency) at any resident and non-resident bank, which are not immediately transferable without restrictions.
Total
Savings deposits
These deposits include all deposits in euros and foreign currency of both residents and non-residents in the form of normal saving accounts, fixed saving accounts, premium saving accounts and fixed-term saving accounts.

Other deposits
Other deposits include all deposits in euros and foreign currency at any resident and non-resident bank (except for saving deposits in euro’s), which are not immediately transferable without restrictions.
Debt securities
Debt securities are negotiable financial instruments serving as evidence of debt.
Total
Short-term securities
All securities with a maximum term of one year, which in principle are transferable against a price that has been fixed in advance. Usually, the obliged interest payments of the debtor have been discounted in the value. 'Transferable' means that assets can be converted into cash from, or on a date that has been appointed at the moment the bond was issued.
This transaction covers treasury paper issued by both the Dutch government and foreign governments, saving certificates to bearer and transferable certificates of deposits, issued by banks.

Long-term securities
All transferable securities, which generally do not mature within one year. They are usually quoted at the stock exchange. The interest on long-term bonds is made payable through coupons. Mortgage bonds, notes issued by banks and convertible bonds as long as they have not been converted into shares, also belong to this type of assets.
Loans
Loans are created when creditors lend funds to debtors.
Total
Short-term loans
Short-term loans are all credits, which do not have the characteristics of deposits and which mature by contract within one year. Included are short-term loans from financial institutions, balances on current accounts (except transferable deposits), short-term consumer credit, bills (of exchange) and promissory notes.
Long-term loans
Long-term loans are all credits, which do not have the characteristics of deposits and which do not mature within one year. They mainly concern long-term loans on obligations, mortgage loans and long-term consumer credit.
Equity, investment fund shares or units
Equity and investment fund shares or units are claims, which are -fully, or partly- entitled to a share in profits or in the own funds in case of liquidation. Included is the value of capital formation by the government in public enterprises (quasi-corporations) that belong to the government.
Equity and investment fund shares or units are residual claims on the assets of the Equity and investment fund shares or units include:
- listed shares
- unlisted shares - other equity
- investment fund shares or units

Total
Equity
Equity is a financial asset that is a claim on the residual value of a corporation, after all other claims have been met. Ownership of equity in legal entities is usually evidenced by shares, stocks, depository receipts, participations, or similar documents. Shares and stocks have the same meaning.
Total
Listed shares
Listed shares are equity securities listed on an exchange. Such an exchange may be a recognised stock exchange or any other form of secondary market. Listed shares are also referred to as quoted shares. The existence of quoted prices of shares listed on an exchange means that current market prices are usually readily available.
Unlisted shares
Unlisted shares are equity securities not listed on an exchange.
Other equity
Other equity comprises all forms of equity other than those classified in sub-categories listed shares and unlisted shares.
Investment fund shares or units
Investment fund shares are shares of an investment fund if the fund has a corporate structure. They are known as units if the fund is a trust. Investment funds are collective investment undertakings through which investors pool funds for investment in financial and/or non-financial assets.
Total
Money market fund (MMF) shares or units
Money market fund (MMF) shares or units are shares issued by MMFs. MMF shares or units can be transferable and are often regarded as close substitutes for deposits.
Non-MMF investment fund shares/units
Other investment fund shares or units other than MMF shares or units represent a claim on a portion of the value of an investment fund other than an MMF. These types of shares and units are issued by investment funds.
Insurance, pension and guarantee schemes
Insurance, pension and standardised guarantee schemes are divided into six subcategories:
- non-life insurance technical reserves
- life insurance and annuity entitlements
- pension entitlements
- claims of pension funds on pension managers
- entitlements to non-pension benefits
- provisions for calls under standardised guarantees
Total
Non-life insurance technical reserves
Non-life insurance technical reserves are financial claims that non-life insurance policy holders have against non-life insurance corporations in respect of unearned premiums and claims incurred.
Life insurance and annuity entitlements
Life insurance and annuity entitlements consist of financial claims that life insurance policy holders and beneficiaries of annuities have against corporations providing life insurance.
Pension entitlements and claims
Pension entitlements and claims of pension funds on pension managers and entitlements to non-pension benefits
Pension entitlements comprise financial claims that current employees and former employees hold against either:
- their employers;
- a scheme designated by the employer to pay pensions as part of a compensation agreement between the employer and the employee
- an insurer.

Claims of pension funds on pension managers and entitlements to non-pension benefits
For the Netherlands this category only relates to claims of pension funds on pension managers, entitlements to non-pension benefits don’t occur here.
An employer may contract with a third party to look after the pension funds for his employees. If the employer continues to determine the terms of the pension schemes and retains the responsibility for any deficit in funding as well as the right to retain any excess funding, the employer is described as the pension manager and the unit working under the direction of the pension manger is described as the pension administrator. If the agreement between the employer and the third party is such that the employer passes the risks and responsibilities for any deficit in funding to the third part in return for the right of the third party to retain any excess, the third party becomes the pension manager as well as the administrator.
Provisions for calls under guarantees
Provisions for calls under standardised guarantees are financial claims that holders of standardised guarantees have against institutional units providing them. Provisions relating to calls under standardised guarantees are prepayments of net fees and provisions to meet outstanding calls under standardised guarantees. Like provisions for prepaid insurance premiums and reserves, provisions for calls under standardised guarantees include unearned fees (premiums) and calls (claims) not yet settled. Standardised guarantees are guarantees that are issued in large numbers, usually for fairly small amounts, along identical lines. Such arrangements involve three parties: the borrower, the lender and the guarantor. Either the borrower or the lender may contract with the guarantor to repay the lender if the borrower defaults. Examples are export credit guarantees and student loan guarantees.
Fin. derivatives, employee stock options
Financial derivatives and employee stock options are divided into two subcategories:
- financial derivatives
- employee stock options

Total
Financial derivatives
Financial derivatives are financial instruments linked to a specified financial instrument or indicator or commodity, through which specific financial risks can be traded in financial markets in their own right. Financial derivatives meet the following conditions:
- they are linked to a financial or non-financial asset, to a group of assets, or to an index;
- they are either negotiable or can be offset on the market; and
- no principal amount is advanced to be repaid.
The financial derivatives include options and forwards (warrants, futures, swaps and forward rate agreements). Forwards are recorded net on the assets side of the balance sheets, financial transactions and other changes, meaning that no liabilities are presented but only net assets. The outstanding positions can therefore have a negative value.
Total
Options
Options are contracts which give the holder of the option the right, but not the obligation, to purchase from or sell to the issuer of the option an asset at a predetermined price within a given time span or on a given date.
Forwards
Forwards are financial contracts under which two parties agree to exchange a specified quantity of an underlying asset at an agreed price (the strike price) on a specified date.
Employee stock options
Employee stock options are agreements made on a given date under which an employee has the right to purchase a given number of shares of the employer's stock at a stated price either at a stated time or within a period of time immediately following the vesting date.
Other accounts receivable/payable
The transactions in the sector accounts are mainly recorded at a moment that does not coincide with the moment the transaction is completed. These time differences cause changes in assets and liabilities, which are recorded in the transaction ‘other accounts receivable and payable’.
For example, sales are recorded at the moment of delivery. At that moment, a claim of the supplier on the buyer (supplier’s credit) arises, which is nullified when the buyer pays. Other examples are payments in advance on deliveries (buyer’s credit) and due payments or receipts of wages and salaries, interests, contributions etc.

Financial transactions in other accounts receivable/payable comprise:
- Trade credits and advances; and
- Other accounts receivable/payable, excluding trade credits and advances.


Total
Trade credits and advances
Trade credits and advances are financial claims arising from the direct extension of credit by the suppliers of goods and services to their customers, and advances for work that is in progress or is yet to be undertaken, in the form of prepayment by customers for goods and services not yet provided.
Other receivable/payable
Other accounts receivable/payable are financial claims arising from timing differences between distributive transactions or financial transactions on the secondary market and the corresponding payments. Other accounts receivable/payable include financial claims created as a result of the timing difference between accrued transactions and payments made in respect of, for example:
- wages and salaries;
- taxes and social contributions;
- dividends;
- rent; and
- purchase and sale of securities.
