Non-banks’ role in cross-border funding grows

Non-bank financial institutions account for about one-fifth of cross-border dollar and sterling funding

Banks have rapidly expanded the share of their cross-border funding acquired from non-bank financial institutions (NBFIs) over the last six years, data from the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) shows.

More than one-fifth (22%) of overseas borrowings in sterling, as of Q1 2019, were from NBFIs, compared with just 5% at end-2013. 

Cross-border US dollar funding from NBFIs accounted for 20% of the total as of end-March, up from 7.9% in Q4 2013.

Borrowings in yen from NBFIs rose to 18%
