Deposits in Cyprus Continue to Rise for Third Consecutive Month, While Loans Decrease

Deposits in the Cypriot banking system rose for the third consecutive month in April 2024, while loans experienced a net decrease following two months of growth, according to the latest data from the Central Bank of Cyprus (CBC).

Key Highlights:

  • Deposit Growth: In April 2024, total deposits saw a net increase of €209.1 million, following a net increase of €252.1 million in March 2024. The annual growth rate of total deposits reached 1.4%, up from 0.6% in March 2024. The total balance of deposits in April 2024 was €52.5 billion.
  • Source of Growth: The increase in deposits was driven primarily by residents of Cyprus, with deposits rising by €256.9 million. Household deposits increased by €33.5 million, and non-financial corporation deposits rose by €136.2 million. Deposits from other domestic sectors also grew by €87.1 million.
  • Loan Decline: Total loans in April 2024 saw a net decrease of €278.6 million, in contrast to a net increase of €133.1 million in March 2024. The annual growth rate of total loans was 1.2%, down from 1.8% in March 2024. The total balance of loans in April 2024 stood at €24.9 billion.
  • Loan Specifics: Loans to households increased slightly by €2.0 million, while loans to non-financial corporations decreased by €51.2 million. Loans to other domestic sectors collectively saw a significant decrease of €271.3 million.


The continued rise in deposits suggests growing confidence in the Cypriot banking system, reflecting economic stability and trust in financial institutions. The net increase in household and corporate deposits indicates positive sentiment among local residents and businesses.

Conversely, the decline in loan volumes highlights cautious borrowing behavior, possibly influenced by economic uncertainties or stricter lending conditions. The drop in loans to non-financial corporations and other domestic sectors suggests a need for initiatives to stimulate borrowing and investment to sustain economic growth.


The April 2024 data from the Central Bank of Cyprus paints a mixed picture of the Cypriot financial landscape. While deposit growth is a positive indicator of economic confidence, the decline in loans calls for strategic measures to boost lending and support economic activity.
