External business of Monetary Financial Institutions operating in the UK - 2017 Q3

This statistical release covers all claims on and liabilities to other countries by UK-resident banks and building societies (monetary financial institutions).
Published on 01 December 2017
  • Adjusted for exchange rate movements, external liabilities rose by $17.5 billion during 2017 Q3. This increase was more than accounted for by Offshore Centres, mainly to the Cayman Islands. This was offset by a decrease in liabilities to Developed Countries, driven by a fall in liabilities to Germany and France.
  • Adjusted for exchange rate movements, external claims rose by $46.9 billion. The largest increase in claims was on Developed Countries, more than accounted for by the United States. This was partially offset by a decrease in claims on International Organisations and Other claims, unallocated by country.
