Total Bank Deposits increased by 0.9%, climbing from AED2,166.6 billion at the end of August 2022 to AED2,186.9 billion at the end of September 2022.

Money Supply aggregate

The Money Supply aggregate M3 also rose by 1.6%, from AED2.02 trillion at the end of August 2022 to AED2.05 trillion at the end of September 2022.
