TFF draw boosts Commonwealth Bank’s LCR to 129%

HQLAs hit A$128 billion after injection of cheap central bank funding

Commonwealth Bank’s liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) increased by 4% to 129% in the last quarter after it tapped more than A$30 billion ($22 billion) from a temporary funding facility introduced by the Reserve Bank of Australia at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Australia’s largest lender had fully drawn down its A$51 billion allocation under the RBA’s term funding facility (TFF) by the end of June, up from A$19.1 billion in the previous quarter.
