Greek bank deposits rise in March after two-month decline

Text size Aa Aa

ATHENS (Reuters) – Greek private sector bank deposits rose in March after declining in the previous two months, central bank data showed on Tuesday.

Businesses and household deposits increased to 133.44 billion euros (£115.17 billion) from 132.18 billion in February, Bank of Greece data showed.

Greek banks have seen deposit inflows over the space of more than two years after the country clinched a third bailout to stay in the euro zone in July 2015.

Athens exited its latest bailout in August and is relying on bond markets to refinance its debt.
