In order to illustrate the most significant modifications, Tables 1 and 2 present a summary of the financial system’s structure during four different points in time: 1986- 1989, 1990, 1995, and 2001.

Table 2 complements the information by presenting the participation of each financial intermediary in the total assets of the financial system.
