Direct investor/other investor classification
4.34. This classification is used in BOP and IIP statistics. The classification subdivides Australian resident investors in non-resident enterprises into direct investors and other investors. Identification of direct investors enables measurement of flows of Australian direct investment abroad and the stock of Australian direct investment in foreign enterprises. A resident direct investor is defined in Australia's BOP and IIP statistics as a resident enterprise or individual, who owns 10% or more of the ordinary shares or voting power (for an incorporated enterprise) or the equivalent (for an unincorporated enterprise) of a non-resident enterprise.
4.35. An 'other investor' is a resident enterprise or individual who is an investor in one or more non-resident enterprises but is not a direct investor.
