Bank Liabilities Survey - 2014 Q2

This quarterly survey of banks and building societies is aimed at improving our understanding of the role of lenders’ liabilities and capital in driving credit and monetary conditions.
Published on 23 June 2014

The 2014 Q2 survey was conducted between 8 May and 30 May 2014.


The terms and conditions under which banks can raise funding will influence their capacity to lend and the price of that lending.


Lenders reported that the supply of deposits from firms and households had made a broadly neutral contribution to the volume of deposits raised in Q2.

Wholesale markets

The proportion of wholesale market funding issued in public, rather than private, markets increased in 2014 Q2, and was expected to increase further in Q3.


Banks’ capital positions may affect banks’ funding costs and the price and availability of credit to households and companies, while the costs of capital are also taken into account when banks price lending.

Transfer pricing

A bank’s transfer price is the marginal absolute cost charged internally to business units for obtaining funding from the treasury unit, ie the cost of funding the flow of new loans.
