Emerging Markets Bank Lending Conditions Survey - 2012Q4

January 30, 2013

The composite index of the IIF’s Emerging Markets Bank Lending Conditions (EMLC) Survey increased to 50.5 in 2012Q4, and is now pointing to the first overall improvement in bank lending conditions since 2011Q2. Based upon inputs received from 141 banks domiciled in emerging economies, the results showed a significant easing in funding conditions. However, credit conditions continued to tighten as the increase in non-performing loans still remains a concern.
