The South African national financial account data are revised periodically after every comprehensive revision of the national account statistics, which normally occurs on a five-yearly basis. Following the newly revised set of national account statistics, the flow of funds data were revised to reflect the resultant changes. In line with statistical regularity, the financial side of the flow-of-funds matrix changed marginally over the revision period. The aggregate impact of the revision revealed a slight increase in the total flow of funds from 1992 to 2008 and a non-trivial increase from 2009 to 2013. The purpose of this supplement to the June 2015Quarterly Bulletin is to restate the national financial account data covering the period 1992 to 2013 and to present long-term trends in the flow of funds. These data therefore supersede all the quarterly and annual set of flow-of-funds statistics that were published earlier for the corresponding period. Section 2 of the supplement provides a synopsis of the methodology used to compile the national financial account in South Africa. In section 3 the individual sectors’ flow of funds are briefly discussed and conclusions are drawn in section 4.
