Asset Purchase Facility (APF) ceiling, August 2017

On 3 August 2017, the Governor of the Bank of England requested to raise the limit on purchases that may be undertaken by the APF to ensure that the Term Funding Scheme (TFS) can continue to lend central bank reserves to banks and building societies during a defined drawdown window at rates close to Bank Rate. The Chancellor of the Exchequer authorised the increase in the total size of the APF via an exchange of letters on 3 August 2017.
