Liquidity coverage ratios strengthen at EU banks

European Union banks bolstered their liquidity coverage ratios in the three months to end-September 2018, although some countries' lenders with the thinnest buffers saw them depleted further.

European Banking Authority (EBA) data shows the weighted average EU LCR improved by 30 basis points from end-June to 148.5%, up from 144.5% in September 2017 and 140.4% the year before that. 

Greece, France, Norway, Luxembourg and Austria reported the lowest average LCRs, at 33.1%, 129.7%, 130.1%, 132.4%
