Greek private sector bank deposits rose in July for the third month in a row, although they remain at 14-year lows, central bank data showed on Monday.

Business and household deposits rose to 121.25 billion euros from 120.42 billion in June, their lowest level since July 2003.

Greek banks have seen small deposit inflows over the space of more than two years, after the completion of the long negotiations for a third bailout with the country’s creditors.

While they remain dependent on central bank borrowing to plug their funding gaps, banks have reduced their exposure.

“In July, deposits of the private sector increased by 927 million euros compared with an increase of 1.09 billion euros in the previous month while the annual growth rate was 4.3% from 3.4% in the previous month,” the Bank of Greece said.
