CoverFinancial big data and policy work: opportunities and challenges — 2019 edition

Public authorities working in the financial sphere have shown an increasing interest for big data. On the supply side, the amount of information at hand has boomed, reflecting not only the internet revolution, but also all the various initiatives launched after the financial crisis of 2007-09 to make a better use of existing sources of information – including, but not only, digital sources – and start new data collections, often on a very large scale.

As a result, “Financial Big Data” are quite specific. They primarily consist of the very large though relatively well-structured data sets derived from administrative and financial activities, for which new private data sources can play a major role.

Accessing these data can provide many opportunities for public authorities like central banks. But specific challenges also arise when handling these data and using them to support policy. In practice, this calls for being both pragmatic – ie starting with small pilot projects when exploring the financial big data universe – and ambitious – ie taking this opportunity to revisit existing information systems in a holistic way.

These various dilemma can be illustrated by two data collections of particular importance for central banks, one on derivatives transactions and one on the issuance of debt securities. [+]

The Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) Methodological Manual represents a comprehensive overview of methods that are used in the compilation process for the HICP.

CoverMeasurement of regional supply of banking services against the background of digitization

The publication deals with the evaluation of the regional supply of financial services. Digitisation and the associated reduction of branches are taken into account. The previous measurement approach (branches per square kilometre or per inhabitant) will be critically examined and an extended measurement approach will be presented. This approach addresses demographic, topographical, settlement structural and infrastructural (Internet) aspects. It has been used by Conrad et al. (2018) for public savings banks and cooperative banks in Germany at a small-scale level. A comparison of the supply level within Germany was carried out. But a comparison with the results for different countries could not be made. This paper therefore discusses how the new approach can be applied to other countries of the European Union. It will be shown that the transmission is only partially successful because important data is missing. The data set problems are discussed in this paper and finally the results of the measurement and comparison of the supply situation of six European countries - based on the available data - are presented.
