FX boosts UK derivatives values

Bank of England data for second quarter shows 33% rise in FX derivatives values at UK banks

UK banks: growth was driven by higher values for foreign exchange derivatives

The gross mark-to-market value of all derivatives contracts held by UK banks rebounded in the second quarter, ticking up for the first time since the first quarter of 2016.

The growth was driven by higher values for foreign exchange derivatives, which rose 33% quarter-to-quarter to £1.5 trillion, from £1.1
