Balance sheet summary for Government credit funds

The Central Bank of Iceland now publishes a separate balance sheet summary for Government credit funds, whereas these funds were previously included with the balance sheet summary for other financial corporations. This change has been made because of Statistics Iceland’s new classification of general government institutions and companies. Until now, only Part-A governmental institutions have been included under general government institutions in statistical reporting. Part-B and Part-C institutions have been classified under other economic sectors, according to their activities; for instance, as financial corporations or non-financial companies. Government credit fund data extend back to March 1992.
