The International Investment Position shows the position of foreign assets and liabilities, by instrument, at the end of a particular period. These are classified under direct investment; portfolio investment; financial derivatives; other investment; and reserve assets. The IIP at the end of a specific period reflects the financial transactions, valuation changes, and other adjustments, denoted by instrument. As from 2014, the International Monetary Fund Balance of Payments Manual (BPM6) classification is being used for the compilation of the IIP. The IIP data are collected through direct reporting surveys and complemented by administrative sources.
