Quarterly estimates of flows of finance between the Life and Superannuation sector and other sectors; disaggregations of flows and levels of finance by sector and subsector.
Purpose of Data
Flow of funds statistics; national accounts capital account. The data published provides a quarterly statement of financial flows between the different sectors of Australia's economy.

Detailed Description
Estimates for all superannuation funds.
Superannuation Data Items
Transactions, valuation adjustments and levels of financial assets and liabilities and non-financial assets. Flow of funds data relating to superannuation (published 5232.0) differ from those published in the ISC quarterly bulletin in that they measure the flows as well as the levels of financial assets and liabilities, with adjustments to the flows for changes in the value of the assets and liabilities. Also, flow of funds estimates are consistent with data published in the Australian National Accounts, Balance of Payments and International Investment statistics. It is possible to disaggregate Flow of Funds data for the Life and Superannuation sector into sub-sectors (life offices, superannuation funds, friendly societies) while still retaining this consistency with the Australian National Accounts.
