Participation in the Sterling Monetary Framework

The number of firms participating in the Sterling Monetary Framework (as at 17 March 2022) are:

Sterling Monetary Framework 223
Reserves accounts and Operational Standing Facilities 214
Open market operations 112
Discount Window Facility


Operational Standing Facilities

We do not publish data on individual Operational Standing Facilities transactions. We publish aggregate data on OSFs drawings on the third Wednesday of the following maintenance period on the Bank of England Database.

Discount Window Facility

We do not publish data on individual transactions within the Discount Window Facility. We update aggregate data on DWF drawings on the first Tuesday following the final working day of the calendar quarter, five quarters ahead.

Asset Purchase Facility - Gilt Purchase Operations

We have data available on the nominal value of each of the gilts purchased. These are reported on a trade date basis, and updated following any gilt purchase operation:

The maturity profile of the stock of gilts held in the APF, in terms of total purchase proceeds, is illustrated in the chart below.

APF gilt Portfolio Run-Off Profile

Line shows the run-off profile of the stock of gilts held in the APF, in terms of total purchase proceeds. The stock falls gradually over time as gilts mature, until the last gilt held matures on 22 October 2071.
The underlying data can be derived from our operational results or is available to download:

Asset Purchase Facility - Corporate Bond Purchase Scheme

We have published a list of the individual sterling corporate bonds held in the Asset Purchase Facility, as at 5 May 2022.

The maturity profile of the stock of corporate bonds held in the CBPS, in terms of aggregate nominal holdings, is illustrated in the chart below.

APF corporate bond portfolio maturity profile

During purchases, we aimed for a balanced portfolio, allocating each bond eligible for purchase to a sector, using a common sector classification. Purchases were undertaken so that our holdings were broadly representative of each sector’s share within the list of eligible bonds. 

Because the sales process will ultimately entail selling all of the Bank’s holdings of corporate bonds, the Bank will not target specific sector shares at points in time. Information on sector shares will therefore no longer be published during sales.

Term Funding Scheme with additional incentives for SMEs (TFSME)

The Bank will publish on this page quarterly data showing, for each group participating in the TFSME, the amount borrowed from the Scheme and the net quarterly flows of lending to UK households and firms. The first publication on 4 June 2020 will show lending data only. This will include participants’ base stock of lending as of end-December 2019, and Q1 net quarterly flows of lending for participants who have had this data certified by end-May.

Quarterly provisional publication dates for 2022 are set out in the table below.

Alternative Liquidity Facility

We do not publish data on individual transactions within the Alternative Liquidity Facility. We update monthly average aggregate data on ALF usage each quarter, with a one-quarter delay.

Historic facilities and schemes

The Bank of England Database provides more data for operations, facilities and schemes that have closed or been suspended. For example, the Funding for Lending Scheme (FLS), the Term Funding Scheme (TFS) and the Covid Corporate Financing Facility (CCFF).

Additional information on other historic operations, facilities and schemes is available via the National Archives.
