CrossBorder Capital Liquidity Indices

Published in Strategy Indices

Established in 1986, the Global Liquidity Indexes (GLI™) provides a consistent and dependable measure of financial conditions market-by-market. By collecting data series reported by Central Banks, National Treasuries and private sector institutions across some 80 economies worldwide every month, the GLI™ represent the most comprehensive survey of liquidity and credit conditions available to professional investors and advisors. They highlight the contributions from different liquidity providers by tracking data on credit spreads, credit growth and leverage, available funding, cross-border flows and Central Bank interventions.

The indices are published in a timely fashion, typically within 10 working days of each month-end and give a very early indication of business and credit conditions at that point in time. The indices are homogeneous in both content and methodology. They are based on reported data or facts, and not on forecasts or opinions. They are expressed both as normalised data in local currency terms and in US dollar value terms, and thus offer unique cross-market comparisons. The database typically starts for most economies in 1980.
