It was confirmed earlier this year that upon Greece's exit from its final bailout programme, the waiver in place on Greece's government bonds would expire, making them ineligible for the ECB's QE programme. Alpha Bank noted that it was able to maintain its ECB reliance at 3.1 billion euros. As at the end of August, ECB funding reliance was down by around 100 million in the year to date, ELA funding by 5.9 billion, while deposits had increased by 3.2 billion, repos by 2.6 billion along with 500 million euros which stemmed from a covered bond issuance.
Overall, the waiver effect had an impact of 1.2 billion on the bank's ECB collateral pool.
