BoC dependence on ELA falls

The Central Bank of Cyprus recently announced that the Bank of Cyprus’ dependence on Emergency Liquidity Assistance (ELA) fell by more than €100 million during April 2014, from €9.5 to €9.4 billion.

This marks the most significant reduction of the bank’s dependence on ELA since last December, when it had been trimmed by €224 million.

But overall, the Cypriot banking system’s dependence on monetary policy instruments (Eurosystem) remained at March levels – €1.4 billion.

Cypriot banks’ dependence on ELA had peaked in March 2013 at €11.4 billion, and decreased to its lowest point since in August 2013 at €9.85 billion, when the Bank of Cyprus exited its resolution programme and was reinstated as an eligible counterparty by the European Central Bank.

Since August, the bank’s dependence on ELA has maintained a slowly declining trajectory.
