The Government – Central Bank, or Central Bank Industry Sector consists of entities that manage the financial system including the currency and reserves of a country through monetary policy and bank / financial institution supervision regulations.
The Industry Sector is a classification that describes the activity of an entity within the economy. The classification is based on where the relevant entity derives the majority of its revenue.
In the Collaborative Bond and Money Market Data Model the Central Bank Sector appears within the Industry Sector Type: Government.
CMDportal uses industry sector classifications both at the Legal Entity level, as well as at the Group level. At the Legal Entity level the entity is classified by their actual industry activity. Accordingly, we classify a government corporation that is part of a central bank as a government corporation at the entity level but at the group level as for example a "Government – Central Bank.”
