- 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.
