Securities lending transactions not backed by cash collateral were formerly treated as selling (securities lent were posted as assets of the borrower). Starting from this publication, the treatment of the securities lending transactions are unified, and all the securities lent are posted as lender's asset (flow data is planned to be modified accordingly from those for 1st quarter 2002).
