Abstract

Le Guide de l'enquête coordonnée sur l'investissement direct (ECID) a été préparé pour aider les économies qui participent à cette enquête. L'enquête est menée sous les auspices du département des statistiques du FMI dans un large éventail de pays. Elle est organisée simultanément par tous les pays participants, recourt à des définitions cohérentes, et encourage les bonnes pratiques en matière de collecte, d'établissement et de diffusion de données sur les positions d'investissement direct. Elle constitue donc un outil important pour prendre la mesure des totaux mondiaux et de la répartition géographique des positions d'investissements directs et contribue ainsi à l'établissement de nouvelles conclusions importantes sur l'étendue de la mondialisation, ainsi qu'à l'amélioration de la qualité globale des données sur l'investissement direct dans le monde. Au moment de la rédaction de ce guide actualisé, plus de 100 pays participaient à l'enquête coordonnée.

Abstract

Esta Guía ha sido elaborada para ayudar a las economías a participar en la Encuesta Coordinada sobre la Inversión Directa (ECID). La ECID, que se está llevando a cabo simultáneamente en todas las economías participantes, se basa en definiciones uniformes, e incentiva la adopción de prácticas óptimas para la recopilación, compilación y divulgación de datos sobre las posiciones de inversión directa. Por lo tanto, la ECID es una herramienta importante para cuantificar el total mundial de las posiciones de inversión directa y para representar su distribución geográfica, contribuyendo así a la formación de nuevas e importantes apreciaciones sobre el alcance de la globalización y al mejoramiento de la calidad general de los datos mundiales sobre inversión directa. Al momento de actualización de la Guía, más de 100 economías participaban en la ECID.

Abstract

This Coordinated Direct Investment Survey Guide (Guide) has been prepared to assist economies in participating in the Coordinated Direct Investment Survey (CDIS). The CDIS is being conducted under the auspices of the Statistics Department of the IMF across a wide range of economies. The survey is conducted simultaneously by all participating economies; uses consistent definitions; and encourages best practices in collecting, compiling, and disseminating data on direct investment positions. The CDIS is thus an important tool in capturing world totals and the geographic distribution of direct investment positions, thereby contributing to important new understandings of the extent of globalization, and improving the overall quality of direct investment data worldwide. As of the writing of this updated Guide, more than 100 economies participate in the CDIS.

Abstract

Hedge funds are collective investment vehicles, often organized as private partnerships and resident offshore for tax and regulatory purposes. Their legal status places few restrictions on their portfolios and transactions, leaving their managers free to use short sales, derivative securities, and leverage to raise returns and cushion risk. This paper considers the role of hedge funds in financial market dynamics, with particular reference to the Asian crisis.
