Chapter 4. Credit institutions and credit financial intermediaries

As from the April 2017 data, the confidential statements regularly sent by credit institutions to the Banco de España and that are a source for the compilation of this chapter have been modified. This change is in response to the adaptation to the criteria for the compilation, terminology, definitions and formats of the FINREP (FINancial REPorting) statements under European Union regulations.

To ensure the continuity of the information offered in this chapter, minor changes have been made to some of its tables, re-grouping and re-ordering of certain series. Moreover, certain breakdowns not available in the new data framework have been maintained.

As indicated in the tables, these changes may give rise to breaks as from the April data, whereby the data should moreover be considered as provisional.
