About

The BIS statistics on financial market infrastructures and their critical services are part of the Red Book statistics of the 27 member jurisdictions of the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures (CPMI) and are published annually.

The statistics detail quantitative and qualitative information on participation and activities in payment systems, central securities depositories and central counterparties, such as the number of members and their overall settlement/clearing activity. This section also provides information on the flows of SWIFT messages.

The financial market infrastructures covered in the statistics are:

  • Payment systems: Payment systems (PS). A distinction is made between:
    • Large-value Payment Systems (LVPS)
    • Retail payment systems (RPS)
    • Fast payment systems (FPS)
  • Central counterparties (CCP) or clearing houses (CH)
  • Central securities depositories (CSD)
  • Trade repositories (TR)

The country tables present developments for individual CPMI jurisdictions over time. The comparative tables combine key data from the country tables from all CPMI jurisdictions. The comparative tables also contain qualitative information on the payment systems, central securities depositories, central counterparties and trade repositories in the CPMI jurisdictions.
