Corporate sector

English
Hide / Show Abstract

Corporate sector covers non-financial and financial corporation sectors: The non-financial corporation sector includes all private and public enterprises that produce goods and /or provide non-financial services to the markets. In some countries, it also include quasi-corporations consisting of sole proprietors and unincorporated partnerships. This is an issue for international comparison as the sectorial coverage may impact indicators. Financial corporations consist of all resident corporations or quasi-corporations principally engaged in financial intermediation – that is, channelling funds from lenders to borrowers – or in auxiliary financial activities which are closely related to this.
