13.5. The standard components of portfolio investment are shown in table 13.3. Portfolio investment is primarily split into foreign assets (claims on non-residents) and liabilities (obligations to non-residents). Within these categories, equity securities and debt securities are separately identified. Debt securities are further sub-divided into three categories: (i) bonds and notes, (ii) money market instruments, and (iii) financial derivatives. Both equity and debt securities are also split by (resident) institutional sector, namely general government, depository corporations, and other sectors (see box 11.2 for the definition of these sectors).
