European banks’ aggregate LCR dips as outflows rise

Net cash outflows outpaced HQLAs, but liquidity reserves remain plump

High-quality liquid assets (HQLAs) across 32 European banks analysed by Risk Quantum totalled €4.4 trillion ($4.3 trillion) at end-June, up 2% in six months. Over the same period, combined net cash outflows reached €2.8 trillion, up 3%.
