The outflow of deposits in September was almost double than that of the previous month’s €458 million. Of the total, €32,97 billion is held by Cypriot residents, €2,78 billion by other eurozone residents and €11,78 billion by third country residents.
Deposits from third country residents recorded the greatest outflow at €539 million, followed by Cyprus residents’ deposits at €308 million and eurozone residents’ deposits at €76 million.
Since September 2012, total deposits in the Cyprus system recorded a drop of 33% or €23,2 billion, of which €9,4 billion is due to the haircut in the island’s two largest banks after a Eurogroup decision in late March. On the other hand, loans rose to €64,0 billion in September, up from €63,8 billion in August.
