Assets and Liabilities

Movements in Assets

As of December 31, 2011, total assets were € 2,164 billion. The increase of € 258 billion or 14 % compared to December 31, 2010, was primarily related to derivatives as well as interest-earning deposits with banks. The shift in foreign exchange rates, and in particular between the U.S. dollar and the euro contributed € 43 billion to the overall increase of our balance sheet during 2011.

The increase of positive market values from derivatives by € 202 billion was primarily driven by changing U.S. dollar, euro and pound sterling yield curves as well as € 19 billion relating to currency translation effects.

Interest-earning deposits with banks increased by € 70 billion from € 92 billion as at year-end 2010 to € 162 billion as at year-end 2011, primarily to strengthen our liquidity reserve.

Non-derivative trading assets have decreased by € 30 billion during 2011, with debt securities contributing to more than half of the decrease.

Our loan book has slightly increased by € 5 billion during the year, from € 408 billion as at December 31, 2010 to € 413 billion at year-end 2011.

Movements in Liabilities

Total liabilities were up by € 254 billion to € 2,109 billion as of December 31, 2011.

The increase in total liabilities occurred mainly in negative market values from derivatives, which were up by € 192 billion, mainly driven by changing yield curves and currency translation effects, similar to positive market values from derivatives.

Also, deposits increased significantly by € 68 billion, with 70 % relating to deposits from banks and 30 % to deposits from non-bank customers.
