BEA’s BE-180 Benchmark Survey of Financial Services Providers: Implications for U.S. Asset Managers

September 15, 2015

In the fall of 2015, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) will administer its next Benchmark Survey of Financial Services Transactions between U.S. Financial Services Providers and Foreign Persons on Form BE-180 (BE-180). The mandatory survey is conducted once every five years and measures international trade in financial services. The BE-180 is one of a series of surveys collected by the BEA (collectively, BE Forms) that gather data on cross-border activities of a wide range of U.S. financial services providers, including asset managers, banks, broker-dealers and insurers. The BE Forms are designed to measure international trade and collect data that contribute to macroeconomic studies like the calculation of balance of payments.
