Notes to Editors

  1. “Deposits” include intra-group borrowing that is not capital in nature.
  2. As at 30 September 2019, foreign currency deposits comprised 44.76% (£15.50bn) of total deposits (30 June 2019: 47.58% (£17.01bn)) as expressed in sterling equivalent. These deposits are primarily denominated in US dollars and Euro. The figures at 30 June 2019 compared to those at 30 September 2019 are influenced by exchange rate movements on a total foreign currency basis (GBP weakened against USD by 3.15%, and strengthened against EUR by 0.89%).
