Business conditions remain good for banks this year

06/17/2024 / Press release

This year has seen a continuation of conditions conducive to good performance by the banks. The moderate economic activity, which is expected to strengthen over the following quarters, and the high level of ECB interest rates are the major factors in the banks’ continuing high profitability. Deposits by the non-banking sector remain the main source of bank funding, and the stock remains at high levels, despite the banks opting overall not to raise deposit interest rates. The stock of loans to the non-banking sector is recording modest growth, with household loans increasing in particular.
