Notes to Editors


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

2. As at 31 December 2022, foreign currency deposits comprised 45.07% (£18.66bn) of total deposits (30 September 2022: 46.10% (£18.98bn)) as expressed in sterling equivalent.  These deposits are primarily denominated in US dollars and Euro.  The figures at 31 December 2022, compared to those at 30 September 2022, were partly influenced by exchange rate movements on a total foreign currency basis (GBP strengthened against USD by 9.01%, whilst it weakened very slightly against EUR (0.88%)).
