Notes to Editors

  1.    “Deposits” include intra-group borrowing that is not capital in nature.
  2.    As at 31 March 2020, foreign currency deposits comprised 50.23% (£18.58bn) of total deposits (31 December 2019: 47.10% (£16.55bn)) as expressed in sterling equivalent.  These deposits are primarily denominated in US dollars and Euro.  The figures at 31 March 2020 compared to those at 31 December 2019 are influenced by exchange rate movements on a total foreign currency basis (GBP weakened against USD by 6.02%, and against EUR by 4.24%).
