The leaders of large UK banks told Reuters about the weakening activity of corporate clients in recent months amid statements by two candidates for the post of British Prime Minister about the readiness to hold Brexit without a deal. Commercial customers of banks postpone their decisions on investments and borrowings. The largest UK creditors said they would publish reports on the results of the first half of the year in the coming weeks. In the event of the fall of the British economy, banks such as RBS, HSBC and Barclays, have previously formed reserves of several million pounds. Nevertheless, according to the Bank of England estimates, British lenders are quite stable and will be able to withstand even in the absence of a deal when a country leaves the EU.
