Notes to Editors


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


2)     As at 31 December 2023, foreign currency deposits comprised 43.54% (£18.21bn) of total deposits (30 September 2023: 45.05% (£19.00bn)) as expressed in sterling equivalent.  These deposits are primarily denominated in US dollars and Euro.  Exchange rate movements on a total foreign currency basis (GBP strengthened marginally against USD by 4.01% and was stable against EUR) did not materially affect the figures at 31 December 2023, compared to those at 30 September 2023.
