Spain | Lending - following the rhythm of COVID-19 and public aid

Key points

  • Key points:
  • Total financing increased by around 3% in 2020—after over 10 years of deleveraging—thanks to corporate funding which, driven by ICO loans, ended the year up 8%.
  • The most recent data available (through to June), shows growth in mortgage lending of 0.3% yoy and the new flows continue to pleasantly surprise us.
  • Similarly, consumer lending—after last year's dip—has reached a turning point and is recording positive growth rates.
  • Finally, corporate lending has stabilized in the last few months, following its strong growth last year.
