UK bank LCRs fall in Q2, led by HSBC

Implementation of new methodology weighs on bank’s end-quarter LCR

Funding risk edged up at the top five UK banks in the second quarter of the year, with HSBC and Lloyds reporting the biggest quarterly drop. 

HSBC saw its liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) drop nine percentage points at the end of June, the most of its UK peers. The bank’s quarter-end LCR stood at 133.5%, down from 142.7% three months prior.
