Who holds Greek debt?

July 4, 2011 § 1 Comment

With Greece heading toward default on its debt, many news organizations are looking at who would pick up the tab. This New York Times chart breaks down how much Greek debt each country holds. The data comes from the Bank for International Settlements, which coordinates international financial services regulations and serves as a bank for central banks.

The BIS maintains a vast menu of statistics, so here is the exact location where you would find these figures:

Go to the BIS site’s Consolidated Banking Statistics page (http://www.bis.org/statistics/consstats.htm.)
Scroll down to the bottom, where you will see a link to Table 9E Foreign exposures on selected individual countries, ultimate risk basis. Note that not all countries will be listed in the data.

§ One Response to Who holds Greek debt?

  • John Hayes says:

    The USA hold only about 10 Billion of the debt. Why should we care if France takes the hair-cut they keep trying to pass off on other. Bank of American has been forced to pay three times that amount ant they are still doing business. The EU wants all of the good, but none of the bad from their own making.
