The balance of payments financial account is monthly statistics of financial transactions between Denmark and abroad.

The balance of payments financial account is divided into direct investments in equity and intercompany debt, portfolio investments in shares, investment fund shares and bonds as well as financial derivatives such as currency and interest rate swaps, Danmarks Nationalbank's reserve assets and other investments such as loans and deposits.

The balance of payments financial account is a subset of the balance of payments, which consists of three main items: the current account, the capital account and the financial account.

The balance of payments financial account shows how the surplus from the current account of the balance of payments and capital account is invested in financial assets abroad. In the event of a deficit on the current account of the balance of payments, the financial account shows how the deficit is financed. Danmarks Nationalbank compiles the financial account, while the current account and capital account are compiled by Statistics Denmark (link).

The statistics are compiled in accordance with the guidelines laid down in the balance of payments manual issued by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The statistics are published on the 7th banking day of each month. The publication follows Statistics Denmark's publication of the current account of the balance of payments.
