Consumer credit including student loans – 2016-17 Annual update

31 July 2017

The Bank of England publishes monthly statistical data on lending to individuals in Bankstats tables A5.2-A5.6, including breakdowns by the type of lender and product. Within this, the measure of consumer credit comprises credit card lending, overdrafts and other loans.

From the August 2012 release, lending time series published monthly in Bankstats have excluded loans made through Government student finance schemes (“student loans”), in order to make the underlying trends of other components of consumer credit clearer. Monthly series including student loans continue to be updated annually to reflect latest data from the Student Loans Company (SLC). These data are published each July and contain updated data until the end of the most recent tax year (e.g. March 2017).
