LONDON (Reuters) – The Bank of England said on Thursday that it would end a facility that allowed British-based financial institutions to access funds in euros, due to improved market conditions which had removed the need for the programme.
The Liquidity Facility in Euros (LiFE) – which started in March 2019 when there were concerns that Britain’s departure from the European Union might be disorderly – will hold its last scheduled operation on Sept. 29 and close on Oct. 1.
“The Bank of England, in co-ordination with the European Central Bank, stands ready to re-adjust the provision of euro liquidity, including restarting LiFE, as warranted by market conditions,” the BoE said in a statement.
