Supplementary notes

The source adds further comments: " Figures published here are from the FSB's 2019 global non-bank financial intermediation monitoring exercise, which assesses global trends and risks in non-bank financial intermediation. Figures show financial assets when available, otherwise total assets, converted into USD using year-end exchange rates using a constant exchange rate (from end-2018) published by the BIS. These figures may differ from similar statistics published by national/regional authorities due to differences in definitions."
