Sustained growth of domestic monetary resources
Domestic monetary resources of French monetary financial institutions accelerate sharply in May (+7.0%, after +6.1% in April), with their growth rate reaching a pick since December 2008. This sustained growth is driven mainly by overnight deposits (+13.7%, after +13.2%) but domestic resources included in M2-M1 (+2.2%, after +1.4%) and those included in M3-M2 (+2.0%, after +0.2%) also contribute.
After taking into account monetary external assets and liabilities vis-à-vis other monetary union members, the growth rate of the French component of euro area monetary aggregate M3 rises sharply as well (+7.7%, after +6.5%).

Additional information
The outstanding amount of monetary claims (excluding coins and banknotes) consists of claims with an initial maturity of up to and including 2 years that monetary counterparts (basically households, non-financial corporations, general government excluding central government, insurance corporations, investment funds and financial vehicle corporations) hold against monetary financial institutions (deposit-taking institutions, sociétés de financement under French law, Caisse des dépôts et consignations, MMF and the central bank).

Saving accounts include regulated saving accounts, i.e. livrets A, livrets de développement durable, comptes d'épargne logement, livrets d'épargne populaire, and non-regulated saving accounts, i.e. livrets jeunes and livrets ordinaires. Amounts held on regulated saving accounts are partly transferred by deposit-taking institutions to a fund managed by the Caisse des dépôts et consignations. Debt securities with maturity of up to 2 years mainly include certificates of deposit (short term paper) issued by French deposit-taking institutions and subscribed by neither MMF nor deposit-taking institutions counterparts.

Annual growth rates are adjusted for reclassifications and revaluations but not for foreign exchange rate effects.
