What are we looking at?
Bank Deposits are a liability item in a central bank’s balance sheet. Charts on this page cover volume development, growth, and seasonality of Bank Deposits with the ECB and Deutsche Bundesbank. The data is updated on a weekly basis.
Why are we looking at it?
Banks place excess liquidity as deposits with central banks. Since June 2014 banks are charged for holding deposits with the ECB via negative interest rates. The volume development of bank deposits is therefore an important indicator of the degree of bank charges due to excess liquidity.
