Deposits increase by EUR 1.7b

In December 2015, deposits decreased 0.4 percent month on month but increased 5.2%  year on year to HRK 257 billion, the Croatian National Bank said on Wednesday.

Foreign exchange deposits at the end of December 2015 totalled HRK 171.3 billion, down HRK 1.9 billion on the month but up HRK 6.5 billion on the year, in good part due to the sale of the TDR tobacco company to British American Tobacco (BAT) in September.

Retail deposits accounted for 82% of all deposits in December 2015, totalling HRK 168.7 billion, down 0.1% on the month but up 1.1% on the year. Corporate deposits totalled HRK 30.6 billion, down 3.5% on the month, but up 20.1% on the year, which was due to the TDR sale to BAT.
