Sterling certificates of deposit

Quarterly Bulletin 1972 Q4
Published on 01 December 1972

Sterling certificates of deposit were first issued in October 1968. Following the successful development of a market in dollar certificates of deposit, which were introduced into the United States on a large scale early in 1961, and into the United Kingdom in May 1966, a number of banks suggested that a similar market might be made in sterling certificates of deposit and that this would be a useful addition to the range of services provided by the U.K. banking system.

This article first gives a brief description of the certificate and of the primary and secondary markets, and then looks at developments in these markets in the four years since sterling certificates were first issued.
