Notes to Editors

1) “Deposits” include intra-group borrowing that is not capital in nature.

2)   As at 30 September 2020, foreign currency deposits comprised 46.04% (£16.12bn) of total deposits (30 June 2020: 48.32% (£17.30bn)) as expressed in sterling equivalent.  These deposits are primarily denominated in US dollars and Euro.  The figures at 30 September 2020 compared to those at 30 June 2020 are influenced by exchange rate movements on a total foreign currency basis (GBP strengthened against USD by 4.03%, but was static against EUR).
