Co­or­di­nated Port­fo­lio In­vest­ment Sur­vey: 2015

The Co­or­di­nated Port­fo­lio In­vest­ment Sur­vey (CPIS) is an an­nual ex­er­cise car­ried out by a num­ber of coun­tries fol­low­ing the method­ol­ogy es­tab­lished by the In­ter­na­tional Mon­e­tary Fund. The CPIS mea­sures the mar­ket value of to­tal se­cu­rity as­sets held abroad by en­ti­ties resident in a coun­try, in this case Malta. The data, shown by in­stru­ment, is fur­ther bro­ken down by coun­try where the fi­nan­cial as­sets are in­vested.

The amount of to­tal se­cu­ri­ties as at the end of 2015 stood at €103.8 bil­lion, an in­crease of €3.3 bil­lion when compared to year end­ing 2014.

More than 76% of to­tal se­cu­ri­ties were con­trib­uted by eq­uity se­cu­ri­ties, amount­ing to €79.2 bil­lion. In 2015, eq­uity se­cu­ri­ties in­creased by €7.1 bil­lion over the po­si­tion at the end of 2014.

To­tal debt se­cu­ri­ties, mainly long-term se­cu­ri­ties, stood at €24.3 bil­lion at the end of 2015, reg­is­ter­ing a de­crease of €3.9 bil­lion over the po­si­tion at the end of 2014.

In terms of ge­o­graph­i­cal al­lo­ca­tion of se­cu­ri­ties, Turkey re­mains the main con­trib­u­tor for port­fo­lio in­vest­ment as­sets, mainly due to long-term debt se­cu­ri­ties.
