Financial Conditions (December 2018)

Central Bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan)

PRESS RELEASE                              Release Date: January 24, 2019            

Financial Conditions (December 2018)

Monetary Aggregates   For the month of December 2018, the monthly growth rates of the monetary aggregates M1B and M2, measured on a daily average basis, were 0.88% and 0.19%. The annual growth rate of M1B increased to 5.69% mainly because of faster growth in passbook savings deposits, whereas the annual growth rate of M2 slightly decreased to 3.07% mainly because of net foreign capital outflows. For the year of 2018, the average annual growth rates of M1B and M2 were 5.32% and 3.52%, respectively.

Direct and Indirect Finance   At the end of December, the monthly growth rate of total outstanding loans and investments (measured on a cost basis) of monetary financial institutions was 0.17%, lower than that at the end of the previous month. Meanwhile, the annual growth rate increased from 5.21% at the end of the previous month to 5.39% mainly 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 3.86%, slightly lower than the 3.88% registered at the end of the previous month.
