Financial Conditions (January 2017)

Central Bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan)

PRESS RELEASE                                                Release Date: February 24, 2017                

Financial Conditions (January 2017)

Monetary Aggregates   For the month of January 2017, the monthly growth rates of the monetary aggregates M1B and M2, measured on a daily average basis, were 1.52% and 0.55%, respectively. The annual growth rate of M1B increased to 6.05% mainly because of a stronger demand for funds before the Chinese New Year holidays, whereas the annual growth rate of M2 decreased to 3.72% mainly because of slower growth in foreign currency deposits.

Direct and Indirect Finance   At the end of January, the monthly growth rate of total outstanding loans and investments (measured on a cost basis) of monetary financial institutions was 0.93%, higher than that at the end of the previous month. Meanwhile, the annual growth rate increased from 3.88% at the end of the previous month to 4.38% mainly because of faster growth in bank claims on the private sector. 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 2.97%, higher than the 2.56% registered at the end of the previous month.
