Latest Bank Liabilities Survey

Developments in lenders’ balance sheets are of key interest to the Bank of England in its assessment of economic conditions. Changes in the price, quantity and composition of lenders’ funding may affect their willingness or ability to lend, and the price of lending.

The aim of this quarterly survey of banks and building society lenders is to improve understanding of the role of lenders’ liabilities and capital in driving credit and monetary conditions. Lenders are asked about the past three months and the coming three months.

The survey covers developments in the volume and price of bank funding; developments in the loss-absorbing capacity of banks as determined by their capital positions; and developments in the internal price charged to business units within individual banks to fund the flow of new loans, sometimes referred to as the ‘transfer price’.

This report presents the results of the 2017 Q3 survey. The 2017 Q3 survey was conducted between 21 August 2017 and 8 September 2017.
