Description topics

Total amount
Net worth
Net worth equals the financial assets minus the liabilities plus the non-financial assets. Up to and including 2010 these data concern the households sector including the non-profit institutions serving households. From 2011 onwards these non-profit institutions serving households are no longer included for assets and liabilities, but still included in non-financial assets.
Assets
Assets are possessions of households. Up to and including 2010 these data concern the households sector including the non-profit institutions serving households. From 2011 onwards these NPISH are no longer included.
Total
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.
Debt securities
Debt securities are negotiable financial instruments serving as evidence of debt.
Loans
Loans are created when creditors lend funds to debtors.
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

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
Fin. derivatives, employee stock options
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.

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.
Liabilities
Liabilities are debts of households. Up to and including 2010 these data concern the households sector including the non-profit institutions serving households. From 2011 onwards these NPISH are no longer included.
