The EUI Library launched access to the ECMI (European Capital Markets Institute) database on 10 June. ECMI contains statistics on European and global capital markets, including disaggregated data on equity markets and MiFID (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive) statistics for pan-European and national equity markets. The database is structured in eight primary sections, each with multiple sub-divisions: 1. Equity Market, 2. Debt Securities Market, 3. Exchange-traded Derivative Market, 4. Over-the-Counter Derivative Market, 5. Asset Management, 6. Gross Domestic Product, 7. Exchange Rates, and 8. Global Comparative Data. Access is via library server, restricted to EUI members. Full details.

Here are details of the database sub-divisions (third-level breakout is visible in the database):

1. Equity Market: domestic market capitalisation; MiFID statistics; value of share trading; ETF

2. Debt Securities Market: amount outstanding (by issuer and segment); net issuance (by issuer and segment); bond market by exchange; covered bond market; securitisation (issuances and amounts outstanding)

3. Exchange-traded Derivative Market: turnover (by exchange, risk category, maturity and location); open interest (by risk category)

4. Over-the-Counter Derivative Market: notional amounts outstanding and gross market values; foreign exchange; single-currency interest rates; equity-linked; commodity; credit default swaps; comparison of OTC and exchange traded derivatives (ETD)

5. Asset Management: mutual funds; mutual funds – excluding funds of funds; UCITS market; Non-UCITS market; comparison of EU UCITS and non-UCITS markets; pension funds (total assets); insurance companies (total assets)

The ECMI research division designed the database “to overcome the existing data fragmentation on the evolution of European capital markets by offering a ‘one-stop-shop’ for market participants, regulators, academics and students… enabling users to trace trends so as to highlight the ongoing transformations of capital markets, including the structural changes brought about by competitive forces, innovation, and regulation.”
