Financial Conditions (October 2013)
Monetary Aggregates For the month of October 2013, the monthly growth rates of the monetary aggregates M1B and M2, measured on a daily average basis, were -0.17% and 0.17%, respectively, both lower than those of last month. The annual growth rates of M1B and M2 increased to 8.58% and 5.99%, respectively, mainly owing to net foreign capital inflows. For the first ten months of this year, the average annual growth rates of M1B and M2 were 6.99% and 4.55%, respectively.
Direct and Indirect Finance At the end of October, the monthly growth rate of total outstanding loans and investments (measured on a cost basis) of monetary financial institutions was 0.28%, lower than that at the end of the previous month. Meanwhile, the annual growth rate decreased from 5.87% at the end of the previous month to 5.53%, mainly owing to slower growth in bank claims on the government and government enterprises. If (1) loans and investments extended by life insurance companies, (2) non-accrual loans reclassified and bad loans written off by monetary financial institutions, and (3) funds raised directly from capital markets were all taken into account, the total outstanding amount of funds raised by the non-financial sector would show an annual growth rate of 5.00%, lower than the 5.06% registered at the end of the previous month.
