Abstract In this paper we exploit the newly augmented Coordinated Portfolio Investment Survey data of the IMF to study the cross-border inter-sectoral portfolio asset holdings of Germany. Our analysis reveals a significant degree of heterogeneity in the international asset positions of various German holding entities. The findings of our study also suggest differential relations between portfolio holdings and a set of “gravity-style” factors across holder-issuer pairings of various sectors. We conclude that aggregate-level patterns in international portfolio holdings may not persist in inter-sectoral data.
