The database provides the market value of foreign portfolio holdings of U.S. securities by country and by type of security.  Data reflect values at the end of June of each year.

Values less than $500,000 are reported as zero. Data include only foreign holdings of U.S. long-term securities.  Long-term securities include all forms of equity and all debt securities with an original term-to-maturity of over one year.  With the exception of Canada, these figures include only private holdings of U.S. equities. Foreign official institutions consist primarily of foreign national government institutions involved in the formulation of international monetary policy, but also include national government-sponsored investment funds and other national government institutions.  Foreign official holdings, included in the total but not in the country rows, totaled $533 million in 2017.
