Financial Conditions (April 2018)

Central Bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan)

PRESS RELEASE                                          Release Date: May 24, 2018                         

Financial Conditions (April 2018)

Monetary Aggregates   For the month of April 2018, the monthly growth rates of the monetary aggregates M1B and M2, measured on a daily average basis, were -0.18% and 0.10%, respectively, both higher than those of the previous month. The annual growth rate of M1B increased to 5.60% mainly because of greater growth in demand deposits. Although affected by net foreign capital outflows, the annual growth rate of M2 only slightly declined to 3.59% owing to faster growth in loans and investments. For the first four months of this year, the average annual growth rates of M1B and M2 were 4.83% and 3.60% respectively.

Direct and Indirect Finance   At the end of April, the monthly growth rate of total outstanding loans and investments (measured on a cost basis) of monetary financial institutions was 0.47%, lower than that at the end of the previous month. Meanwhile, the annual growth rate increased from 4.98% at the end of the previous month to 5.03% because of faster growth in bank claims on the government. 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 3.39%, the same as that at the end of the previous month.
