Deposits increase as loans decrease

The economic activity of commercial banks has been somewhat unusual, total deposits are at its highest point since 2010 and this just a reflection of the second quarter of 2018. On the other hand, total loans are in its lowest point since 2010. Total deposits began a downfall after 2008 and started to increase without falling since 2016. Total loans have been in a downfall without exceptions since 2009. Consumers debt has also been in a downfall after a sustained increase between 2013 and 2015. This is an expected reaction to the adverse economic moment the island is in.
