Credit Conditions Survey 2013 Q4

08 January 2014

As part of its mission to maintain monetary stability and financial stability, the Bank needs to
understand trends and developments in credit conditions. This quarterly survey of bank and
building society lenders is an input to this work. Lenders are asked about the past three months and the coming three months. The survey covers secured and unsecured lending to households; and lending to non-financial corporations, small businesses, and to non-bank financial firms. Along with various data sources and discussions between the major UK lenders and Bank staff, this survey serves as an input into the quarterly Trends in Lending publication which presents the Bank of England’s assessment of the latest trends in lending to the UK economy.

This report presents the results of the 2013 Q4 survey. The 2013 Q4 survey was conducted between 11 November and 2 December 2013.
