CBN Reduces Loan-to-Deposit Ratio for Banks to 50%



The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has announced a reduction in the Loan-to-Deposit Ratio (LDR) for deposit money banks (DMBs) from 65% to 50% in a bid to enhance their lending capacity. This decision, outlined in a letter by Dr. Adetona Adedeji, Acting Director of the Banking Supervision Department at the CBN, is part of measures aimed at stimulating lending in the real sector of the economy.

Dr. Adedeji explained that the reduction in the LDR aligns with the CBN’s current monetary tightening stance. Similar to the Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) of banks, which stands at 45%, the adjusted LDR aims to deepen monetary policy tightening while fostering increased lending to businesses in key sectors.

“In light of the shift in policy stance towards a more contractionary approach, it is essential for the LDR policy to mirror the current monetary tightening of the CBN,” stated Dr. Adedeji.


Under the new directive, all deposit money banks are mandated to maintain a Loan-to-Deposit Ratio of 50%. Furthermore, banks are advised that average daily figures will continue to be utilized to assess compliance with this requirement.

The implication of this adjustment is that banks can now extend credit equivalent to 50% of their deposits to customers, providing potential opportunities for increased lending activities.

This move by the CBN comes in the wake of recent efforts to strengthen the banking sector, including the recent upward revision of banks’ minimum capital requirements by at least 100%.


As the CBN continues to implement measures aimed at fostering economic growth and financial stability, stakeholders in the banking industry are expected to align their operations with the revised Loan-to-Deposit Ratio requirement.
