The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) has on March 30th announced that it will launch the 13th Triennial Central Bank Survey of Foreign Exchange and Over-The-Counter (OTC) Derivatives Markets on 1 April, 2022. More than 1,200 financial institutions in 52 reporting jurisdictions will contribute to the 2022 Triennial Survey.1 Data on turnover in foreign exchange and OTC interest rate derivatives markets will be collected from financial institutions in April 2022. Data on the outstanding notional amounts and gross market values of foreign exchange, interest rate, equity, commodity, credit and other OTC derivatives will be collected at the end of June 2022.
Preliminary results for turnover will be published by the BIS in September 2022, and for OTC derivatives outstanding in November 2022. The final results will be published in December 2022.
The previous survey, in April 2019, showed that trading in foreign exchange spot and OTC derivatives markets averaged $6.6 trillion per day. The results of previous Triennial Surveys are available on the BIS website.
Conducted every three years since 1986, the Triennial Survey is the most comprehensive source of information on the size and structure of global foreign exchange and OTC derivatives markets. It aims to help central banks, other authorities and market participants monitor developments in OTC markets and inform discussions about reforms to OTC markets.
The Triennial Survey is coordinated by the BIS under the guidance of the Markets Committee and the Committee on the Global Financial System. Participating central banks survey financial institutions in their jurisdictions and submit national aggregates to the BIS, which calculates and publishes global totals.
