  • Description: Japan's external financial assets increased in 2013 due to an increase in their yen value reflecting the yen's depreciation compared to the previous year end as well as due to net acquisitions of foreign financial instruments by Japanese investors. Meanwhile, Japan's external liabilities also increased in 2013 due to a rise in Japanese equity prices and net acquisitions of Japanese financial instruments by foreign investors. Japan's net asset position increased in 2013 as the increase in assets exceeded that in liabilities. Net assets stood at 325.0 trillion yen at year-end 2013, up from 296.3 trillion yen at year-end 2012.
