Description topics

Assets
Currency and transferable deposits
Currency consists of notes and coins in circulation that are commonly used to make payments. 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.
In foreign currency
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.

Monetary financial institutions
Monetary financial institutions (MFIs) consist of institutional units included in the central bank, deposit-taking corporations except the central bank and money market funds (MMF) subsectors.
The central bank subsector consists of financial corporations and quasi-corporations whose principal function is to issue currency, to maintain the internal and external value of the currency and to hold all or part of the international reserves of the country. In the Netherlands this subsector consists of one entity, De Nederlandsche Bank.
The deposit-taking corporations except the central bank subsector includes financial corporations and quasi-corporations, which are principally engaged in financial intermediation and whose business is to receive deposits and/or close substitutes for deposits from institutional units, hence not only from MFIs, and, for their own account, to grant loans and/or to make investments in securities. MMF are principally engaged in financial intermediation. Their business is to issue investment fund shares or units as close substitutes for deposits from institutional units, and, for their own account, to make investments primarily in money market fund shares/units, short-term debt securities, and/or deposits.
Rest of the world
The rest of the world covers transactions between resident and non-resident institutional units.
