Financial Conditions (July 2018)

Central Bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan)

PRESS RELEASE                               Release Date: August 24, 2018                    

Financial Conditions (July 2018)

Monetary Aggregates   For the month of July 2018, the monthly growth rates of the monetary aggregates M1B and M2, measured on a daily average basis, were 1.05% and 0.04%, respectively, both higher than those of the previous month. The annual growth rates of M1B and M2 decreased to 5.76% and 3.68%, respectively, mainly because of net foreign capital outflows and slower growth in bank loans and investments. For the first seven months of this year, the average annual growth rates of M1B and M2 were 5.33% and 3.70%, respectively.

Direct and Indirect Finance   At the end of July, the monthly growth rate of total outstanding loans and investments (measured on a cost basis) of monetary financial institutions was 0.06%, lower than that at the end of the previous month. Meanwhile, the annual growth rate decreased from 6.04% at the end of the previous month to 5.67% mainly because of slower 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 3.73%, lower than the 3.90% registered at the end of the previous month.
