Consolidated worldwide claims - 2017 Q2

15 September 2017
This statistical release covers the consolidated worldwide external claims and unused commitments of UK-owned monetary financial institutions (excluding central banks) and their branches and subsidiaries worldwide.
 
  • UK-owned monetary financial institutions and their branches and subsidiaries worldwide reported an increase in consolidated external claims on an ultimate risk basis of $21.1 billion during 2017 Q2, to a level of $3,197.2 billion.
  • By sector, the largest increase was on the public sector, up $31.8 billion to a level of $958.0 billion.
  • By region, the increase was driven by a rise in claims on Developed Countries and Offshore Centres of $53.5 billion and $22.9 billion respectively. The increase was partly offset by a $54.7 billion fall in claims on Developing Countries, more than accounted for by a decrease of $57.1 billion on South Africa. This was largely due to business restructuring at one reporting institution.
 
 
The tables in this statistical release are also available in Excel format. Table A is a regional breakdown of external claims of UK-owned monetary financial institutions (excluding central banks). Tables B-G are an analysis of consolidated external claims on an ultimate risk basis, by counterpart sector and by debtor country.
 
 
 
Selected series and a more detailed country and sectoral breakdown of the data are available in Bankstats table C4.2.
