The Central Bank has released the Money and Banking statistics for January here.
In a helpful development, the Bank are now publishing statistics for the six banks covered by the Government guarantee (ELG) scheme. The statistics are published both on a gross assets and liabilities basis and also on a consolidated basis, which net out all intra-bank transactions. For example, the gross balance sheets show assets of €623 billion in December. However, once intra-bank transactions are netted out, the consolidated assets are €455 billion.
Unfortunately, the new Table A.4.2. for the covered banks shows a pretty grim story in relation to deposit outflows. In contrast to some reports, deposit outflows from the covered banks in January were about €18.5 billion, about the same as the rate recorded in December.
Update: A contact from the Central Bank has been in touch with me about the calculation above on deposit outflows. As noted above, the Bank are releasing monthly figures on a gross unconsolidated basis and quarterly figures on a consolidated basis. The €18.5 billion figure that I cited is, as usual, from the gross unconsolidated figures. However, I have been informed by the Central Bank that approximately 75% of the decline in deposits reported inn Table A.4.2, is due to intra-group activities in the banks concerned, so that deposit outflows from the system in January were in fact considerably smaller than in December. I’m happy to pass on this as it is useful information. Still, it suggests that the next logical step is for the Bank to release the consolidated balance sheet on a monthly basis.
