On balance, households were net repayers of debt in the month.
The sector’s forint deposits barely changed, while its foreign currency deposits fell. Non-financial corporations were net repayers in the forint and net borrowers in foreign currency. Their outstanding bank borrowing increased significantly in the month. In addition, non-financial corporations placed more forint deposits than they withdrew and reduced slightly their foreign currency deposits, i.e. their net new deposits were close to zero.
