THE DEPOSIT TAKING FINANCIAL SYSTEM

The Central Bank of Barbados is standardising how it compiles its monetary data to conform to the IMF's Monetary and Financial Statistics Manual. and the monetary series are now better aligned with the IMF's Standard Reporting Forms (SRFs). The IMF introduced the SRFs in 2004 and in 2013 the Bank rolled out new common reporting forms to the domestic entities that it regulates. You can access on this page the financial institutions’ data from 2012 and onwards in the new format.

The Government of Barbados entered into a four-year Extended Fund Facility arrangement with the IMF on October 2018 (IMF-EFF), which required changes in the way in which we report statistics related to the deposit taking financial system. These requirements included the Central Bank Survey, Other Depository Corporations Survey (banks, credit unions and other deposit-taking corporations) and Depository Corporations Survey. Barbados’ First Review under the IMF-EFF was completed in June 2019.
