Greek bank deposits drop 0.9pc in January
Greek bank deposits fell in January after a 2.05 percent increase in the previous month, data released by the country's central bank showed on Thursday. Business and household deposits decreased by 1.15 billion euros, or 0.93 percent month-on-month to 122.23 billion euros ($134.7 billion) , their lowest level since November 2003. They had risen to 123.38 billion euros in December. Greek banks have seen only a trickle of deposit inflows six months after the country clinched a third international bailout to stay in the euro zone and remain hooked on central bank borrowing to plug their funding gap.
