Market Based Finance Monitor

Monitoring Market Based Finance

The Market Based Finance (MBF) sector in Ireland is one of the largest internationally, both in absolute terms and relative to the size of the economy.

As well as providing a valuable alternative to bank financing, MBF can also contribute to a build-up of financial vulnerabilities, which need to be monitored.

In December 2021 Central Bank of Ireland published its first annual Market Based Finance Monitor.

The aim of this new publication is to monitor – in a systematic way – activities and balance sheet trends in the MBF sector that could point to financial vulnerabilities.

This is a core element of the Central Bank of Ireland’s approach to safeguarding financial stability.
