Latest Credit Conditions Review

This publication presents the Bank of England’s assessment of the latest developments in bank funding and household and corporate credit conditions. It draws mainly on long-established official data sources, such as the existing monetary and other financial statistics collected by the Bank, and other data sources such as surveys of businesses and data from other organisations. The analysis also draws on the results of the Bank of England’s Bank Liabilities Survey and Credit Conditions Survey.

These data are supplemented by discussions between Bank staff and the major UK lenders; this intelligence is reflected in the report. The major UK lenders are Banco Santander, Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds Banking Group, Nationwide and Royal Bank of Scotland; together they accounted for around 70% of the stock of mortgage lending, 50% of the stock of consumer credit (excluding student loans), and 65% of the stock of lending to businesses at end-June 2017. The Review also draws on intelligence gathered by the Bank’s network of Agents and from market contacts.

The Review covers data and intelligence gathered up to end-September 2017. Unless stated otherwise, the data reported cover lending in both sterling and foreign currency, expressed in sterling.
