Financial Soundness Indicators
Those exploring international markets may be interested in the Financial Soundness Indicators, available from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). FSIs include earnings, profitability, and liquidity of deposit-taking institutions, return on equity in the nonfinancial corporate sector, and household debt to GDP, among many others. Investors can use FSIs to evaluate the health and stability of a country’s financial systems and identify countries that are better for investing in new businesses.
