Metro Bank saw a quarter on quarter drop in deposits as lending remained flat for the three months ended September, the UK retail bank announced Wednesday.

Total net loans came in at £12.315bn and were broadly flat in the third quarter, compared to the previous quarter ended 30 June which saw loans come in at £12.325bn. The bank said the decline was due to a fall in lower-yielding residential mortgages and commercial term loans. Compared to the same quarter last year, lending fell 18%.

Chief executive Daniel Frumkin said:"The Bank has continued to deliver against its strategic priorities during the quarter. We have seen improvements in our lending mix from our expanded product offering."

Gradual return

The London-based bank, which is known for its 24/7 hour branches, also announced its deposits fell 1% and came in at £16.4bn, versus the previous quarter of £16.6bn. Deposits did grow 5% on a year on year basis.
