Bucking UK trend, StanChart’s LCR jumps in Q1

Sharp reduction in projected net cash outflows pushes liquidity ratio to highest point since 2017

Standard Chartered saw its liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) jump 15 percentage points over the first quarter, in stark contrast to its UK peers.

The bank’s rolling 12-month average LCR as of end-March rose to 161% from 146% three months earlier. This was the result of a sharp drop in net cash outflows (NCOs) – the ratio’s denominator – which fell $12.4 billion (-10%) to $110 billion. In contrast, the stock of high-quality liquid assets (HQLAs) shrank just 1.2%, or $2.2 billion, to $176 billion.
