Notes to Editors


  1. “Deposits” include intra-group borrowing that is not capital in nature.
  2. As at 30 June 2020, foreign currency deposits comprised 48.32% (£17.30bn) of total deposits (31 March 2020: 50.23% (£18.58bn)) as expressed in sterling equivalent. These deposits are primarily denominated in US dollars and Euro. The figures at 30 June 2020 compared to those at 31 March 2020 are influenced by exchange rate movements on a total foreign currency basis (GBP weakened against USD by 0.80%, and against EUR by 2.65%).
