Abstract

[Fiow-of-funds accounts are a component of the national accounts system reporting the financial transactions and balance sheets of the economy, classified by sectors and financial instruments. As described by Winkler (2010), the financial accounts track funds as they move from sectors, such as households, that serve as sources of funds (net lenders), through intermediaries (financial corporations) or financial markets to sectors that use the funds to acquire physical and financial assets (non-financial corporations, government, rest of the world). These flows, together with valuation changes, result in changes to sectoral (net) asset positions and the composition of the corresponding balance sheets.]
