The economy has remained resilient although economic uncertainty has led to some softening in business confidence as well as in international economic indicators. In this environment our strategy continues to be the right one and we are well placed to support our customers and continue to help <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >Britain</location> prosper.<br/> Ant&#243;nio Horta-Os&#243;rio, <em>Group Chief Executive</em><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Strong strategic progress and the right strategy in the current environment</strong> <ul><li>The economy has remained resilient however, as indicated at the first quarter results, the continuing uncertainty is having an impact and leading to some softening in business confidence as well as in international economic indicators</li> <li>The Group has taken a prudent approach to growth and risk in recent years, whilst reducing costs and increasing the investment in the business for the benefit of our customers</li> <li>Since the launch of GSR3 in 2018, the Group has invested <money>&#163;1.5 billion</money> in improving customer experience, increasing efficiency and delivering superior returns.

Market leading cost:income ratio further improved to 45.9 per cent and positive jaws of 3&#160;per cent</li> <li>Credit quality remains strong with a net asset quality ratio of 26 basis points</li> <li>Additional PPI charge of <money>&#163;550 million</money> in the second quarter driven by significant increase in information request volumes in the second quarter, ahead of the August

after the impact of PPI (33 basis points) and IFRS 16 (11 basis points); pro forma CET1 ratio of 14.6 per cent, pre dividend</li> <li>As previously reported, given the lower Systemic Risk Buffer and Pillar 2A requirement, the Board&apos;s view of the level of capital required by the Group to grow the business, meet regulatory requirements and cover uncertainties has reduced from around 13 per cent to around 12.5 per cent, plus a management buffer of around 1 per cent</li> </ul> &#160;<br/><strong>Outlook</strong> <ul><li>The Group&apos;s strategy remains the right one in the current

</tr></table><div>&#160;</div> &#160;<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>GROUP CHIEF EXECUTIVE&apos;S STATEMENT<a/></strong><br/> &#160;<br/> In the first six months of 2019 we have continued to deliver for our customers whilst making strong strategic progress, increasing investment in the business and helping <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >Britain</location> prosper. At the same time we have delivered a good financial performance with market leading efficiency and returns which has enabled the Board to announce an increased interim&#160;dividend.<br/> &#160;<br/> Given our clear <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >UK</location> focus, our performance is inextricably linked with the health of the <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >UK</location> economy. The economy has remained resilient, however the continued economic uncertainty is having an impact on business confidence and leading to some softening in international economic indicators. Companies&apos; investment and employment intentions have both declined in the second quarter of 2019 while global growth has softened and interest rate expectations have declined. Despite this the consumer sector remains robust with increased levels of employment and rising real wages, supporting consumption and GDP growth.<br/> &#160;<br/> In recent years we have deliberately taken a prudent approach to growth and risk and have continued to invest in the business while maintaining a relentless focus on costs. The success of this approach is demonstrated by our financial performance in the first half of the year, which shows the resilience of our business model and the ability to generate market leading returns in an uncertain environment. This further reinforces my confidence that our strategy remains the right one in the current environment and that our significant cost advantage and unique business model mean the Group is well placed to continue to support its customers, help <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >Britain</location> prosper and deliver sustainable, superior returns to our&#160;shareholders.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Financial performance</strong><br/> In the first six months we have delivered a robust underlying profit of <money>&#163;4.2 billion</money>, in line with prior year, with a statutory profit after tax of <money>&#163;2.2 billion</money>, despite an additional PPI charge of <money>&#163;650 million</money>. Net interest margin remained resilient at 2.90 per cent, cost:income ratio further improved to 45.9 per cent, while business as usual costs reduced 5 per cent due to our relentless focus on efficiency, enabling increased strategic investment in the business. Statutory return on tangible equity was strong at 11.5 per cent despite higher below the line charges including PPI. Credit quality also remains strong and our loan portfolios continue to be well positioned, reflecting the Group&apos;s prudent through the cycle approach to credit risk. The CET1 capital build totalled 70&#160;basis points with the Group&apos;s pro forma CET1 ratio increasing to 14.6&#160;per cent, pre dividend.<br/> &#160;<br/> As announced in May, the Board&apos;s view of the level of CET1 capital targeted is around 12.5 per cent, plus a management buffer of around 1 per cent, following the notification by the regulator of the Systemic Risk Buffer and the reduction in the Group&apos;s Pillar 2A in <chron>July 2018</chron>.<br/> &#160;<br/> The strong capital build has enabled the Board to announce an increased interim ordinary dividend of <money>1.12&#160;pence</money> per share, up 5&#160;per cent, in line with the Group&apos;s progressive and sustainable ordinary dividend policy. Good progress has also been made on the share buyback that was announced with our full year results at the time of issuing results we have bought back approximately 1.4&#160;billion shares, with around 50 per cent of the up to <money>&#163;1.75 billion</money> programme now&#160;completed.<br/> &#160;<br/> As also announced in May, the Group will commence paying quarterly dividends in 2020 which will provide a more regular flow of dividend income to shareholders.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Strategic progress </strong><br/> We are now half way through the third stage of our ambitious strategy launched in <chron>February 2018</chron>. In the last eighteen months we have made significant progress in transforming the Group for success in a digital world and, in line with our commitment to invest more than <money>&#163;3 billion</money> over the plan period, have invested <money>&#163;1.5 billion</money> to date to build new sources of competitive advantage across our four strategic pillars.<br/> &#160;<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>GROUP CHIEF EXECUTIVE&apos;S STATEMENT </strong>(continued)<br/> &#160;<br/><em>Leading customer experience </em><br/> We continue to believe that our customers&apos; evolving needs are best served through a multi-brand, multi-channel strategy and are therefore committed to maintaining the <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >UK&apos;s</location> largest digital bank and branch network. In line with this commitment, we have continued to improve our digital proposition, with our digitally active customer base increasing to 15.9 million, of which 9.8 million are mobile app customers. While 75 per cent of products are now initiated via digital channels, branches remain a vital channel for meeting our customers&apos; more complex needs. Since the start of 2018, we have improved our relationship mortgage new business market share by 3 percentage points and, through Schroders Personal Wealth we will extend wealth capabilities to our branch network. Our overall success in improving the customer experience is reflected in our net promoter scores, which increased to 65 for all channels and 67 for digital channels, both up c.5 per cent since year end&#160;2018.<br/> &#160;<br/><em>Digitising the Group </em><br/> We have continued to increase our investment in technology. This now represents 19 per cent of operating costs, up from 16 per cent in 2018, with over 70 per cent of this amount relating to enhancing existing capabilities and creating new ones. This investment is enabling us to improve the experience of our customers and colleagues, while also driving operational efficiencies that will support increased investment going forward. Consistent with this focus, we have made strong progress in transforming customer and colleague end-to-end processes, with activity to date having now covered c.40 per cent of our cost base, up from 12 per cent in the previous strategic plan period.<br/> &#160;<br/><em>Maximising the Group&apos;s capabilities </em><br/> We have continued to build on our Open Banking proposition, which is now available to all of our digital customers, and we were the first in the market to extend this functionality to both savings products and credit cards. In addition, our unique Single Customer View capability, which enables customers to view all of the pension and insurance products that they hold with the Group alongside their banking products, continues to go from strength to strength and is now available to more than four million customers, up by more than one million since the start of the year. We also established Schroders Personal Wealth in June and will launch this to the market in the second half of the year, with the ambition of becoming a top three financial planning business within five years.<br/> &#160;<br/><em>Transforming ways of working </em><br/> In 2019 we have increased our investment in our colleagues, with a focus on ensuring that we are able to continue to attract, develop and retain the talent and capabilities we will need in the future. As part of this, we have increased the &apos;skills of the future&apos; training delivered to our colleagues to a cumulative 2.1 million hours since 2018, putting us well on track to meet our target of 4.4 million hours by the end of the plan period. We have also hired over 900 colleagues across critical areas such as engineering, data science and cyber security, in line with our plan to treble our strategic hiring compared to 2018. Consistent with our focus on improving our overall operating efficiency, building internal capabilities through these initiatives has also enabled us to reduce the use of external resource by 20&#160;per cent since the end of 2017.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Helping Britain Prosper Plan </strong><br/> As part of our purpose of helping <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >Britain</location> prosper, we believe we have a responsibility to help address some of the societal, economic and environmental challenges that the <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >UK</location> faces. During the first half of the year, we contributed <money>&#163;10&#160;billion</money> of gross new lending to businesses, and we are on course to meet our commitment to lend up to <money>&#163;18&#160;billion</money> to <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >UK</location> businesses in 2019 as part of our continued support for the <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >UK</location> economy. Similarly, we are on track to meet our target of <money>&#163;6 billion</money> of additional net lending to start-up, SME and Mid Market clients over the three years to the end of&#160;2020.<br/> &#160;<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>GROUP CHIEF EXECUTIVE&apos;S STATEMENT </strong>(continued)<br/> &#160;<br/> We have now trained around 4,000 people in digital life skills through our <org>Lloyds Bank Academy</org> and have around 23,000&#160;colleagues volunteering as Digital Champions in their local communities as part of our efforts to help close the digital skills gap in the <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >UK</location>. I am also very proud of the Stonewall Top Financial Services Employer and <person>Times Top</person> 50&#160;Employer for Women awards, which we received this year in recognition of our role in championing inclusion and&#160;diversity.<br/> &#160;<br/> To help the <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >UK</location> transition into a sustainable, low carbon economy, which we believe is key to the <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >UK&apos;s</location> prosperity, we are actively incentivising sustainable lending with our clients. In recognition of the Green Lending Initiatives we have put in place so far, we recently won the Real Estate Capital Sustainable Finance Provider of the year award. We also have a portfolio of new propositions under development and are currently piloting a digital app which aims to help our Commercial Banking customers understand and improve the energy efficiency of their buildings.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Outlook</strong><br/> Our results for the first half of the year continue to demonstrate the resilience of our business model and that our strategy remains the right one in the current environment. We expect the Group to continue to deliver sustainable, superior performance for our customers and shareholders, and the resilience of the business model is reflected in our guidance for 2019: <ul><li>Net interest margin of c.2.90 per cent</li> <li>Operating costs of less than <money>&#163;8 billion</money> and cost:income ratio expected to fall</li> <li>Net asset quality ratio of less than 30 basis points</li> <li>Given the below the line charges, including PPI, in 2019 we now expect capital build to be at the lower end of our ongoing 170 to 200 basis points range, and for return on tangible equity to be around 12&#160;per&#160;cent</li> </ul> &#160;<br/> Beyond 2019, our longer term targets remain unchanged although continued economic uncertainty could impact outlook.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Summary </strong><br/> We will maintain our prudent approach to growth and risk whilst retaining our relentless focus on costs and continuing to invest and transform the business for success in a digital world. We are well placed to continue to support our customers, help <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >Britain</location> prosper, and deliver sustainable, superior returns for shareholders.<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>SUMMARY OF GROUP RESULTS<a/></strong><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Good financial performance with market leading efficiency and returns</strong><br/> The Group&apos;s statutory profit after tax was <money>&#163;2,225&#160;million</money>, 4 per cent lower than in the first half of 2018 with robust underlying profit more than offset by higher below the line items, including the PPI provision charge. The return on tangible equity remained strong at 11.5&#160;per&#160;cent.<br/> &#160;<br/> Underlying profit of <money>&#163;4,194&#160;million</money> includes a 2 per cent reduction in net income and the expected higher impairment charge largely offset by lower total costs. The underlying return on tangible equity was 16.3&#160;per&#160;cent.<br/> &#160;<br/> The balance sheet remains strong with lending growth in targeted segments in the quarter including the open mortgage book and SME, and deposit growth largely driven by current accounts. The Group&apos;s pro forma CET1 ratio was 14.6&#160;per&#160;cent pre dividend and 14.0&#160;per cent post dividend with capital build in the first half of 2019 of 70&#160;basis&#160;points, despite 33&#160;basis&#160;points impact from PPI and 11 basis points from the implementation of IFRS 16.

Net interest margin was 2.90 per cent, in line with guidance, with the benefit of lower deposit costs and higher current account balances offset by continued pressure on asset margins. Average interest-earning banking assets were down <money>&#163;3.1 billion</money> year on year with growth in targeted segments, in particular SME (<money>&#163;0.8 billion</money>) and <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >UK</location> Motor Finance (<money>&#163;1.4&#160;billion</money>), more than offset by lower balances in the closed mortgage book (<money>&#163;2.4 billion</money>) and the sale of the Irish mortgage portfolio (<money>&#163;3.3 billion</money>).<br/> &#160;<br/> The Group manages the risk to its earnings and capital from movements in interest rates centrally by hedging the net liabilities which are stable or less sensitive to movements in rates. As at <chron>30 June 2019</chron> the Group&apos;s hedge had a nominal balance of <money>&#163;172 billion</money> (<chron>31 December 2018</chron>: <money>&#163;180 billion</money>) and an average duration of around three years (<chron>31 December 2018</chron>: around four years).

The benefit from the hedge in the six months was <money>&#163;0.5&#160;billion</money> over LIBOR (half-year to <chron>30 June 2018</chron>: <money>&#163;0.8 billion</money>) with a fixed earnings rate of approximately 0.6 per cent over LIBOR (half-year to <chron>30&#160;June 2018</chron>: 0.9 per cent).<br/> &#160;<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>SUMMARY OF GROUP RESULTS </strong>(continued)<br/> &#160;<br/> Other income decreased by 1 per cent to <money>&#163;3,100&#160;million</money> with strong performance within Insurance and Wealth, which increased by 21 per cent reflecting increased workplace pensions new business income and the benefit from the planned change in investment management provider. In Retail, other income reduced 4 per cent with higher current account fee income offset by lower <org value="ACORN:3774876199" idsrc="xmltag.org" >Lex Autolease</org> volumes, with an associated reduction in operating lease depreciation. Commercial Banking income was down 13 per cent and continues to be impacted by challenging conditions in particular within the markets business, resulting in lower levels of client activity.

The impairment charge increased to <money>&#163;579 million</money> and was driven by a number of items including some weakening in used car prices, alignment of credit card provisioning methodologies, lower cash recoveries following prior year debt sales and two corporate cases in Commercial Banking.<br/> &#160;<br/> The Group&apos;s loan portfolios continue to be well positioned, reflecting the Group&apos;s prudent, through the cycle approach to credit risk, and benefiting from continued low interest rates and a resilient <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >UK</location> economy.<br/> &#160;<br/> Overall credit performance in the secured book remains strong with the average mortgage loan to value improving slightly to 42.6 per cent (<chron>Dec 2018</chron>: 44.1 per cent). New business average loan to value was 63.1 per cent and around 91&#160;per cent of the portfolio has a loan to value ratio of less than 80 per cent. New to arrears as a proportion of the total book remains low in both the secured and unsecured books. In Commercial Banking, the book continues to benefit from effective risk management, including a prudent approach to vulnerable sectors and concentration risk.<br/> &#160;<br/> The economic assumptions included in the Group&apos;s IFRS 9 model scenarios have been refined to reflect the economic outlook through 2019, although the impact on the overall Group expected credit loss (ECL) has not changed significantly. The Group&apos;s ECL allowance continues to reflect a probability-weighted view of future economic scenarios including a 30&#160;per cent weighting of downside and a 10 per cent weighting of severe downside. Total ECL allowances as a percentage of drawn balances remains unchanged at 0.9 per cent over the last year.<br/> &#160;<br/> Stage 2 loans and advances to customers as a percentage of total lending reduced by 1.7 percentage points to 8.1 per cent reflecting model refinements and portfolio improvements in 2018, whilst Stage 3 loans and advances were broadly stable at 1.9 per cent. The Group&apos;s coverage of Stage 2 assets was stable at 3.6 per cent whilst coverage of Stage 3 assets reduced by 2.2 percentage points to 23.0 per cent due to increased Commercial Banking Stage 3 balances with lower likelihood of net loss. The Group&apos;s total balance sheet provision at 30 June was <money>&#163;4.4 billion</money> (<chron>31 December 2018</chron>: <money>&#163;4.4 billion</money>), equivalent to around four years of total normalised annual cash write-offs.<br/> &#160;<br/> The Group continues to expect an asset quality ratio of less than 30 basis points in 2019, reflecting strong credit

lower restructuring costs more than offset by an increase in volatility and other items and a higher PPI provision charge. The return on tangible equity was 11.5 per&#160;cent and earnings per share was <money>2.7&#160;pence</money>.<br/> &#160;<br/> Restructuring costs were <money>&#163;182 million</money>, primarily reflecting the completion of the migration of <org value="ACORN:2100500497" idsrc="xmltag.org" >MBNA</org> in the first quarter of 2019, severance costs relating to the Group&apos;s strategic investment plans and the rationalisation of the non-branch property portfolio. Restructuring costs were significantly lower than the previous year due to the completion of the ring-fencing programme and the completion of <org value="ACORN:2100500497" idsrc="xmltag.org" >MBNA</org> integration in the first quarter.<br/> &#160;<br/> Market volatility and asset sales of <money>&#163;296 million</money> included adverse movements in banking volatility and a charge for exiting the Standard Life Aberdeen investment management agreement.<br/> &#160;<br/> The reduction in amortisation of purchased intangibles to <money>&#163;34 million</money> (half-year to <chron>30 June 2018</chron>: <money>&#163;53 million</money>) was driven by a number of intangible assets fully amortising in 2018. Fair value unwind and other items reduced to <money>&#163;135 million</money> (half-year to <chron>30 June 2018</chron>: <money>&#163;171 million</money>) reflecting the run down of the subordinated liabilities acquired during the HBOS acquisition.<br/> &#160;<br/> The PPI provision charge of <money>&#163;650 million</money> included an additional <money>&#163;550 million</money> charged in the second quarter. The additional charge in the quarter is largely driven by the significant increase in PPI information requests received in the second quarter onwards, which will lead to higher total complaints and associated administration costs. PPI information requests and complaint volumes remain uncertain, however the outstanding balance sheet provision at <chron>30 June 2019</chron> was <money>&#163;1.1 billion</money> and assumes total expected complaint volumes increasing from 5.6&#160;million to 5.8&#160;million.<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>SUMMARY OF GROUP RESULTS </strong>(continued)<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Taxation</strong><br/> The tax expense was <money>&#163;672&#160;million</money> (half-year to <chron>30 June 2018</chron>: <money>&#163;800&#160;million</money>) representing an effective tax rate of 23&#160;per&#160;cent (half-year to 2018:&#160;26&#160;per&#160;cent) and benefited from the release of a deferred tax liability. The Group continues to expect the effective tax rate be around 25&#160;per&#160;cent in 2020.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Return on tangible equity</strong><br/> The return on tangible equity was 11.5&#160;per cent and the underlying return on tangible equity was flat at 16.3&#160;per cent primarily reflecting robust underlying profit.<br/> &#160;<br/> Given the below the line charges, including PPI, the Group now expects return on tangible equity to be around 12&#160;per cent in 2019.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Balance sheet</strong><br/> &#160;

The Group&apos;s CET1 capital ratio increased to 14.6&#160;per&#160;cent on a pro forma basis pre dividend and 14.0&#160;per cent post dividend (<chron>31 December 2018</chron>: 13.9&#160;per&#160;cent pro forma post dividend and share buyback).<br/> &#160;<br/> The increase in the CET1 capital ratio included 97 basis points from underlying capital build, primarily driven by underlying profit, and 5 basis points relating to the dividends received from the Insurance business. Market and other movements amounted to 12 basis points. This was partly offset by 33 basis points for PPI and 11 basis points from the implementation of IFRS 16.<br/> &#160;<br/> The Group continues to expect an ongoing capital build of 170 to 200 basis points per annum, pre dividend. Given the additional below the line charges, particularly PPI, we now expect capital build to be at the lower end of this range in&#160;2019.<br/> &#160;<br/> The Board&apos;s view of the level of CET1 capital required by the Group to grow the business, meet regulatory requirements and cover uncertainties remains unchanged since the announced reduction in the first quarter of 2019, at around 12.5&#160;per cent, plus a management buffer of around 1 per cent.<br/> &#160;<br/> The transitional total capital ratio reduced to 21.7 per cent on a pro forma basis (<chron>30 June 2018</chron>: 22.1 per cent; <chron>31&#160;December 2018</chron>: 23.1 per cent) and the Group remains well positioned to meet its MREL requirement from 2020 with a pro forma transitional MREL ratio of 32.2 per cent (<chron>30 June 2018</chron>: 29.7 per cent; <chron>31&#160;December 2018</chron>: 32.6 per cent). The leverage ratio on a pro forma basis reduced to 5.1 per cent (<chron>30 June 2018</chron>: 5.3 per cent; <chron>31&#160;December 2018</chron>: 5.6&#160;per cent pro forma).<br/> &#160;<br/> Tangible net assets per share of <money>53.0 pence</money> (<chron>30 June 2018</chron>: <money>52.1 pence</money>; <chron>31 December 2018</chron>: <money>53.0 pence</money>) increased by <money>2.1 pence</money> before the payment of the 2018 final dividend of <money>2.14 pence</money>.<br/> &#160;<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>SUMMARY OF GROUP RESULTS </strong>(continued)<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Dividend </strong><br/> In respect of the first half of 2019, the Board has announced an interim ordinary dividend of <money>1.12&#160;pence</money> per share, an increase of 5&#160;per cent on prior year and in line with the progressive and sustainable ordinary dividend policy.<br/> &#160;<br/> The Board will continue to give due consideration at each year end to the return of any surplus capital. In February this year, the Board decided to return surplus capital through a share buyback programme of up to <money>&#163;1.75 billion</money>. This commenced in <chron>March 2019</chron> and at the time of issuing results is c.50 per cent complete having purchased c.1.4&#160;billion&#160;shares.<br/> &#160;<br/> The Group announced in <chron>May 2019</chron> that it would move to the payment of quarterly dividends in 2020 in order to accelerate payment of dividends to all shareholders. The Group intends to adopt three equal interim ordinary dividend payments for the first three quarters of the year followed by, subject to performance, a larger final dividend for the fourth quarter of the year. The first three quarterly payments, payable in June, September and December will be 20&#160;per cent of the previous year&apos;s total ordinary dividend per share. The fourth quarter payment will be announced with the full year results, with the amount reflecting the Group&apos;s financial performance and our objective of a progressive and sustainable ordinary dividend. The final dividend will continue to be paid in May, following approval at the Annual General Meeting.<br/> &#160;<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>UNDERLYING BASIS SEGMENTAL ANALYSI<a/>S</strong><br/>

IFRS requires that the changes in both the value of the liabilities and investments are reflected within the income statement. The value of the liabilities does not move exactly in line with changes in the value of the investments. As the investments are substantial, movements in their value can have a significant impact on the profitability of the Group. Management believes that it is appropriate to disclose the division&apos;s results on the basis of an expected return in addition to results based on the actual return. The impact of the actual return on these investments differing from the expected return is included within insurance volatility.<br/> &#160;<br/> In-year volatility movements were largely driven by insurance volatility arising from interest rate movements. The capital impact of equity market movements is now hedged within Insurance and this also reduces the IFRS earnings exposure to equity market movements. Prior to 2019 insurance hedging arrangements were also in place within the Bank.<br/> &#160;<br/> The Group actively manages its exposures to interest rate, foreign currency exchange rate, inflation and market movements within the banking book through a comprehensive hedging strategy. This helps to mitigate earnings volatility and reduces the impact of market movements on the capital position.<br/><br/><strong>4.&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160; Tangible net assets per shar<a/>e</strong><br/> &#160;<br/> The table below sets out a reconciliation of the Group&apos;s shareholders&apos;

Following a review of the Group&apos;s risk categories, change and execution risk, data risk and operational resilience risk were elevated from secondary to primary risk categories in the Group&apos;s Risk Management Framework, reflecting the greater focus in these key areas.<br/> &#160;<br/> The external risk faced by the Group may impact the success of delivering against the Group&apos;s long term strategic objectives. They include but are not limited to global macro-economic conditions, regulatory developments and market liquidity.<br/> &#160;<br/> These changes are being embedded during 2019 and are now reflected within the Group&apos;s principal risks as below:<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Capital risk</strong> - The risk that the Group has a sub-optimal quantity or quality of capital or that capital is inefficiently deployed across the Group.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Change and execution risk </strong>- The risk that in delivering its change agenda, the Group fails to ensure compliance with laws and regulation, maintain effective customer service and availability, and/or operate within the Group&apos;s risk appetite.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Conduct risk</strong> - The risk of customer detriment across the customer lifecycle including: failures in product management, distribution and servicing activities; from other risks materialising, or other activities which could undermine the integrity of the market or distort competition, leading to unfair customer outcomes, regulatory censure, reputational damage or financial loss.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Credit risk</strong> - The risk that parties with whom the Group has contracted fail to meet their financial obligations (both on and off balance sheet). For example observed or anticipated changes in the economic environment could impact profitability due to an increase in delinquency, defaults, write-downs and/or expected credit losses.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Data risk</strong>&#160; - The risk of the Group failing to effectively govern, manage, and protect its data (or the data shared with third party suppliers) impacting the Group&apos;s agility, accuracy, access and availability of data, ultimately leading to poor customer outcomes, loss of value to the Group and mistrust from regulators.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Funding and liquidity risk</strong> - The risk that the Group has insufficient financial resources to meet its commitments as they fall due.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Governance risk</strong> - The risk that the Group&apos;s organisational infrastructure fails to provide robust oversight of decision making and the control mechanisms to ensure strategies and management instructions are implemented effectively.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Insurance underwriting risk</strong> - The risk of adverse developments in the timing, frequency and severity of claims for insured/underwritten events and in customer behaviour, leading to reductions in earnings and/or value. Longevity risk is expected to increase as the Group&apos;s presence in the annuity market increases.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Market risk</strong> - The risk that the Group&apos;s capital or earnings profile is affected by adverse market rates. The principal market risks are interest rates and credit spreads in the banking business, credit spreads in the Insurance business and equity, credit spreads and longevity risk in the Group&apos;s defined benefit pension schemes.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Model risk</strong> - The risk of financial loss, regulatory censure, reputational damage or customer detriment, as a result of deficiencies in the development, application and ongoing operation of models and rating systems.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Operational risk</strong> - Operational risk is defined as the risk of loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems or from external events.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Operational resilience risk</strong> - The risk that the Group fails to design resilience into business operations, underlying infrastructure and controls (people, process, technical) so that it is able to withstand external or internal events which could impact the continuation of operations, and fails to respond in a way which meets customer expectations and needs when the continuity of operations is compromised.<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>PRINCIPAL RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES </strong>(continued)<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>People risk</strong> - The risk that the Group fails to provide an appropriate colleague and customer centric culture, supported by robust reward and wellbeing policies and processes; effective leadership to manage colleague resources; effective talent and succession management; and robust control to ensure all colleague-related requirements are met.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Regulatory and legal risk</strong> - The risk of financial penalties, regulatory censure, criminal or civil enforcement action or customer detriment as a result of failure to identify, assess, correctly interpret, comply with, or manage regulatory and/or legal requirements.<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>CREDIT RISK PORTFOLI<a/>O</strong><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Overview</strong> <ul><li>Credit quality remains strong despite continued uncertainty and a softening in the external market</li> <li>The Group&apos;s loan portfolios continue to be well positioned, reflecting the Group&apos;s continued effective risk management and benefiting from low interest rates</li> <li>The gross asset quality ratio increased to 34 basis points (half-year to <chron>30 June 2018</chron>: 27 basis points)</li> <li>The net asset quality ratio increased to 26 basis points (half-year to <chron>30 June 2018</chron>: 20&#160;basis points)</li> <li>The impairment charge increased to <money>&#163;579 million</money> (half-year to <chron>30 June 2018</chron>: <money>&#163;456 million</money>), driven by a number of items including some weakening in used car prices, alignment of credit card provisioning methodologies, lower cash recoveries following prior year debt sales and two corporate cases in Commercial Banking</li> <li>Stage 2 loans as a proportion of total loans and advances to customers increased slightly to 8.1&#160;per cent (<chron>31&#160;December 2018</chron>: 7.8 per cent).

Coverage of Stage 3 drawn balances reduced to 23.0&#160;per cent (<chron>31 December 2018</chron>: 24.3 per cent), largely as a result of the transfers of a small number of larger, individually assessed names to Stage 3 within Commercial Banking, with lower likelihood of net loss</li> </ul> &#160;<br/><strong>Low risk culture and prudent risk appetite</strong> <ul><li>The Group continues to take a prudent approach to credit risk, with robust credit quality and affordability controls at origination and a prudent through the cycle credit risk appetite</li> <li>Although not immune, credit portfolios are well positioned against an uncertain economic outlook and potential market volatility, including that related to the <location value="LC/gb" idsrc="xmltag.org" >UK&apos;s</location> exit from the EU</li> <li>The Group continues to grow lending to targeted segments while maintaining a prudent risk appetite</li> <li>The Group&apos;s effective risk management ensures early identification and management of customers and counterparties who may be showing signs of distress</li> <li>Sector concentrations within the portfolios are closely monitored and controlled, with mitigating actions taken where appropriate.

Reconciliations between the two bases have been provided.<br/> &#160;<br/> In the following statutory basis tables, purchased or originated credit-impaired (POCI) assets include a fixed pool of mortgages that were purchased as part of the HBOS acquisition at a deep discount to face value reflecting credit losses incurred from the point of origination to the date of acquisition. The residual ECL allowance and resulting low coverage ratio on POCI assets reflects further deterioration in the creditworthiness from the date of acquisition. Over time, these POCI assets will run off as the loans redeem, pay down or losses are crystallised.<br/> &#160;<br/> The Group uses the underlying basis to monitor the creditworthiness of the lending portfolio and related ECL allowances because it provides a better indication of the credit performance of the POCI assets purchased as part of the HBOS acquisition. The underlying basis assumes that the lending assets acquired as part of a business combination were originated by the Group and are classified as either Stage 1, 2 or 3 according to the change in credit risk over the period since origination. Underlying ECL allowances have been calculated accordingly.<br/> &#160;<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>CREDIT RISK PORTFOLIO </strong>(continued)<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Group loans and advances to

The impairment release of &#163;38 million in the first half of 2019 compares to a charge of &#163;20 million for the same period in 2018. This reflects provision releases due to improved credit quality of the portfolio and methodology changes. Total ECL allowance as a percentage of loans and advances remained flat at 0.5 per cent.</li> <li>Unsecured loans and advances remained broadly flat at &#163;27.8 billion. The impairment charge increased by &#163;75&#160;million to &#163;461 million in the first half of 2019 compared to &#163;386 million in the same period in 2018, due to the alignment of credit card provisioning methodologies and policies and lower cash recoveries following prior year debt sales. The total coverage is unchanged at 3.5 per cent.</li> <li>The motor finance portfolio continued to grow, with loans and advances increasing by 6.4 per cent to &#163;15.9&#160;billion in the first half of 2019. The portfolio continues to benefit from a prudent approach to residual values at origination and provisions through the loan lifecycle. ECL allowances for Stage 1 and Stage 2 include residual value provisions which have increased to &#163;179 million at 30 June 2019 (31 December 2018: &#163;99 million). This is due to an anticipated increase in residual value deficits following some weakening in used car prices, a change in policy relating to voluntary terminations and book growth. As a result of this, the impairment charge increased to &#163;104 million for the first half of 2019, compared to &#163;49 million for the same period in 2018 and coverage for the portfolio increased to 2.2&#160;per cent (31 December 2018: 1.9 per cent).</li> <li>Other loans and advances increased by &#163;0.5 billion to &#163;10.9 billion. The impairment charge was &#163;29 million for the first half of 2019 compared to &#163;5 million for the same period in 2018. This increase is primarily due to the non-repeat of prior year IFRS 9 model refinements in Business Banking. Total coverage remained flat at 1.2 per cent (31&#160;December 2018: 1.2 per cent).</li> </ul><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>CREDIT RISK PORTFOLIO </strong>(continued)<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Retail UK

Notwithstanding the current competitive market conditions, the Group is maintaining its prudent and through the cycle credit risk appetite</li> <li>Uncertainty persists around the UK and global economic outlook, including the weakened business investment, the sustainability of global economic growth and the impact of tariff disputes, which has resulted in some softening in external market indicators.

Planning has concentrated on the highest impact &apos;No Deal&apos; scenario</li> <li>Whilst the current economic outlook remains unclear, portfolios remain well positioned and are subject to ongoing risk mitigation actions as appropriate. Monitoring indicates no material deterioration in the credit quality of the portfolio</li> <li>Net impairment charge of &#163;65&#160;million compared with a net release of &#163;6&#160;million in the first half of 2018. Net releases in Stage 1 and Stage 2, weighted towards the SME portfolio and driven by model refinements, were largely offset by Stage 3 gross charges on two corporate cases, rather than any material deterioration in the underlying portfolio</li> <li>The size and nature of the commercial portfolio results in some volatility as cases move between stages. Stage 3 loans as a proportion of total loans and advances to customers has increased to 3.7 per cent (31 December 2018: 3.2 per cent). Stage 3 ECL allowance as a percentage of Stage 3 drawn balances has reduced to 27.8 per cent (31&#160;December 2018: 32.1 per cent) largely as a result of the transfer of a small number of larger individually assessed names to Stage 3 on which lower ECL allowances have been assessed</li> <li>Stage 2 loans as a proportion of total loans and advances to customers increase to 7.3&#160;per&#160;cent (31 December 2018: 6.5&#160;per cent), largely driven by improved data quality and IFRS 9 model refinements. Stage 2 ECL allowances as a percentage of Stage 2 drawn balances were lower at 3.8&#160;per cent (31&#160;December 2018: 5.1&#160;per cent). with the reduction weighted towards SME mainly due to enhanced approach to loan amortisation within the IFRS 9 model and a number of other model refinements</li> </ul> &#160;<br/><em>Portfolios</em> <ul><li>The SME and Mid Markets portfolios are domestically focused and reflect both our prudent credit risk appetite and the underlying performance of the UK economy. Whilst certain sectors of the market are showing some emerging signs of stress, the overall credit quality of the portfolios has remained broadly stable with levels of impairment remaining low</li> <li>The Global Corporates business continues to have a predominance of UK based, and to a lesser extent, US and European-based multi-national investment grade clients. The portfolio remains of good quality and is well positioned for the current economic outlook.</li> <li>Through clearly defined sector strategies, Financial Institutions serves predominantly investment grade counterparties with whom relationships are either client driven or held to support the Group&apos;s funding, liquidity or general hedging requirements</li> <li>The commercial real estate business within the Group&apos;s Mid Markets and Global Corporates portfolio is focused on clients operating in the UK commercial property market ranging in size from medium-sized private real estate entities up to publicly listed property companies. Credit quality remains good with minimal impairments/stressed loans. Recognising this is a cyclical sector, appropriate caps are in place to control exposure and business propositions continue to be written in line with a prudent, through the cycle risk appetite with conservative LTVs, strong quality of income and proven management teams</li> <li>Total UK Direct Real Estate gross lending across Commercial Banking and Retail stood at &#163;15.8&#160;billion at 30 June 2019 (excludes exposures subject to protection through Significant Risk Transfer securitisations)</li> </ul><strong>FUNDING AND LIQUIDITY MANAGEMEN<a/>T</strong><br/> &#160;<br/> The Group has maintained its strong funding and liquidity position with a loan to deposit ratio of 106 per cent as at 30&#160;June 2019 (107 per cent as at 31 December 2018).<br/> &#160;<br/> During the first half of 2019, the Group repaid &#163;12.1 billion of its Funding for Lending Scheme (FLS) drawings, of which &#163;8.1 billion was repaid in advance of contractual maturity. This has reduced the balance of FLS outstanding to &#163;1&#160;billion with &#163;19.9 billion of Term Funding Scheme (TFS) drawings remaining at 30 June 2019.<br/> &#160;<br/> Overall, total wholesale funding increased by &#163;7.6 billion to &#163;130.9 billion primarily through increased term and money market funding.<br/> &#160;<br/> The Group&apos;s strong ratings continue to reflect its robust balance sheet, improved profitability and bail-in capital position. There were no changes to the Group&apos;s ratings over the first half of 2019, although in March Fitch placed the majority of UK banks, including the Group&apos;s banking and insurance entities, on Ratings Watch Negative reflecting their view that the risks of a &apos;No Deal&apos; Brexit have increased.<br/> &#160;<br/> The Group&apos;s liquid assets continue to exceed the regulatory minimum and internal risk appetite, with a liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) of 130 per cent (based on a 12 month rolling average) as at 30 June 2019 calculated on a Group consolidated basis based on the EU Delegated Act. Following the implementation of structural reform, liquidity is managed at a legal entity level with the Group consolidated LCR representing the composite of the ring-fenced bank and non ring-fenced

funding markets across a wide range of products, currencies and investors to maintain a stable and diverse source of funds. In 2019, the Group has continued with this approach to funding, including capital and funding from the holding company, Lloyds Banking Group plc, as needed to transition towards final UK Minimum Requirements for Own Funds and Eligible Liabilities (MREL). The Group will continue to issue funding trades from Lloyds Bank plc, the ring-fenced bank operating company, across senior unsecured, covered bonds, ABS and RMBS. In the first half of 2019, the Group launched an operating company funding programme for LBCM, the non ring- fenced bank, and have since issued a number of trades for this entity including an inaugural five year &#163;500 million senior unsecured public benchmark transaction. The maturity of the Funding for Lending and Term Funding Schemes are fully factored into the Group&apos;s funding plans, and in the expected &apos;steady state&apos; wholesale funding requirements of &#163;15 to &#163;20&#160;billion per annum.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Liquidity portfolio</strong><br/> At 30 June 2019, the banking business had &#163;132.3 billion of highly liquid, unencumbered, LCR eligible assets (31&#160;December 2018: &#163;129.4 billion). These assets are available to meet cash and collateral outflows and regulatory requirements. Total LCR eligible liquid assets represent over five times the Group&apos;s money market funding less than one year to maturity (excluding derivative collateral margins and settlement accounts) and exceed total wholesale funding, and thus provide a substantial buffer in the event of market dislocation. The Insurance business manages a separate liquidity portfolio to mitigate insurance liquidity risk.<br/> &#160;<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>FUNDING AND LIQUIDITY MANAGEMENT </strong>(continued)<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>LCR eligible assets </strong><br/> &#160; <table border="1"><tr><td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> </tr><tr><td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>At 30 June&#160; </strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>At&#160;31&#160;Dec</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>Average</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>Average</td> </tr><tr><td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>2019</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>2018</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong><em>Change</em></strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>2019</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>2018</td> </tr><tr><td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#163;bn</strong></td> <td>&#160;&#160;</td> <td>&#163;bn</td> <td>&#160;&#160;</td> <td><strong>%</strong></td> <td>&#160;&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#163;bn</strong></td> <td>&#160;&#160;</td> <td>&#163;bn</td> </tr><tr><td><strong>Level 1 </strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> </tr><tr><td>Cash and central bank reserves</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#160;52.6</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;48.9</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong><em>&#160;8</em></strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#160;50.0</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;58.1</td> </tr><tr><td>High quality government/MDB/agency bonds<sup>1</sup></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#160;76.6</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;78.7</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong><em>&#160;(3)</em></strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#160;77.2</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;66.2</td> </tr><tr><td>High quality covered bonds</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#160;1.8</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;1.0</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong><em>&#160;80</em></strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#160;1.4</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;0.8</td> </tr><tr><td><strong>Total</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#160;131.0</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;128.6</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong><em>&#160;2</em></strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#160;128.6</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;125.1</td> </tr><tr><td>Level 2<sup>2</sup></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#160;1.3</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;0.8</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong><em>&#160;63</em></strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#160;0.9</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;0.8</td> </tr><tr><td><strong>Total LCR eligible assets</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#160;132.3</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;129.4</td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong><em>&#160;2</em></strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td><strong>&#160;129.5</strong></td> <td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;125.9</td> </tr></table> &#160; <table border="0"><tr><td>&#160;</td> <td>&#160;</td> </tr><tr><td><sup>1</sup></td> <td>Designated multilateral development bank (MDB).</td> </tr><tr><td><sup>2</sup></td> <td>Includes Level 2A and Level 2B.</td> </tr></table><div>&#160;</div> &#160;<br/> The banking business also has a significant amount of non-LCR eligible liquid assets which are eligible for use in a range of central bank or similar facilities. Future use of such facilities will be based on prudent liquidity management and economic considerations, having regard for external market conditions.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Encumbered assets</strong><br/> The Board and Group Asset and Liability Committee monitor and manage total balance sheet encumbrance using a number of risk appetite metrics. At 30 June 2019, the Group had &#163;56.6 billion (31 December 2018: &#163;53.4&#160;billion) of externally encumbered on balance sheet assets with counterparties other than central banks. The increase in encumbered assets was primarily driven by external covered bond issuances during the first half of 2019. The Group also had &#163;626.7 billion (31 December 2018: &#163;584.3&#160;billion) of unencumbered on balance sheet assets, and &#163;138.9&#160;billion (31&#160;December 2018: &#163;159.8 billion) of pre-positioned and encumbered assets held with central banks. The Group encumbers mortgages, unsecured lending and credit card receivables through the issuance programmes and tradable securities through securities financing activity. The Group mainly positions mortgage assets at central banks. The 2018 Annual Report and Accounts includes further details on how the Group classifies assets for encumbrance purposes.<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>CAPITAL MANAGEMEN<a/>T</strong><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Analysis of capital position</strong><br/> During the first half of 2019 the Group&apos;s CET1 capital ratio increased by 70 basis points on a pro forma basis before ordinary dividends, primarily as a result of: <ul><li>Underlying profit (97 basis points) and the dividend paid by the Insurance business in July 2019 in relation to 2019 interim earnings (5 basis points)</li> <li>The impact of market and other movements, including movements in risk-weighted assets, generating an increase of 12 basis points</li> <li>Offset by a reduction of 33 basis points relating to PPI provision charges and 11 basis points relating to changes arising from the implementation of IFRS 16</li> </ul> &#160;<br/> Overall the Group&apos;s CET1 capital ratio has strengthened to 14.6&#160;per&#160;cent on a pro forma basis before ordinary dividends and 14.0 per cent on a pro forma basis after ordinary dividends (31 December 2018: 13.9 per cent pro forma, including the share buyback). Excluding the Insurance dividend paid up in July 2019 the Group&apos;s CET1 capital ratio is 13.9&#160;per cent after ordinary dividends.<br/> &#160;<br/> The accrual for foreseeable dividends includes the declared interim dividend of 1.12 pence per share. In addition the share buyback programme announced as part of the 2018 year end results has been accrued for in full, net of buybacks completed up to the period end.<br/> &#160;<br/> The transitional total capital ratio, after ordinary dividends, reduced to 21.6 per cent, largely reflecting the impact of the full share buyback on CET1 capital and a net reduction in additional tier 1 (AT1) capital following a redemption in the period.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Total capital requirement</strong><br/> On 1 January 2019 following entry into force of the UK&apos;s ring-fencing regime, the Group&apos;s Pillar 2A capital requirement increased from 4.6 per cent to 4.7 per cent, of which 2.7 per cent must be met by CET1 capital. This firm specific capital requirement reflects a point in time estimate by the PRA, which may change over time, of the minimum amount of capital that is needed in relation to risks not covered by Pillar 1.<br/> &#160;<br/> The Group&apos;s total capital requirement as at 30 June 2019, being the aggregate of the Group&apos;s Pillar 1 and current Pillar 2A capital requirements, was &#163;26,346 million (31 December 2018: &#163;26,124 million).<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Combined buffer requirement </strong><br/> The Group is required to maintain a number of regulatory capital buffers, referred to collectively as the combined buffer requirement, which must be met with CET1 capital.<br/> &#160;<br/> The Group announced within the first quarter of 2019 interim management statement that it had received notification from the PRA that the systemic risk buffer for the Group&apos;s Ring-Fenced Bank sub group will be 2.0&#160;per cent which equates to 1.7&#160;per cent at Group level.<br/> &#160;<br/> As a result the Group is now subject to the following capital buffers: <ul><li>A capital conservation buffer (CCB) of 2.5&#160;per&#160;cent of risk-weighted assets</li> <li>A countercyclical capital buffer (CCyB) of 0.9&#160;per&#160;cent of risk-weighted assets</li> <li>A systemic risk buffer (SRB), equivalent to 1.7 per cent of risk-weighted assets at Group level, which will apply from 1&#160;August 2019</li> </ul> &#160;<br/> The Group is not currently classified as a global systemically important institution (G-SII) but has been identified as an &apos;other&apos; systemically important institution (O-SII) by the PRA. The O-SII buffer is currently set to zero in the UK.<br/> &#160;<br/><br/> &#160;<br/><strong>CAPITAL MANAGEMENT </strong>(continued)<br/> &#160;<br/> Given the buffer requirements noted, the Board indicated in the first quarter of 2019 statement that its view of the level of CET1 capital required to grow the business, meet regulatory requirements and cover uncertainties is around 12.5&#160;per cent, plus a management buffer of around 1 per cent.<br/> &#160;<br/> An analysis of the Group&apos;s capital position as at 30 June 2019 is presented in the following section on both a CRD IV transitional arrangements basis and a CRD IV fully loaded basis. In addition the Group&apos;s capital position reflects the application of the transitional arrangements for IFRS 9.<br/> &#160;<br/> The following table summarises the consolidated capital position of

The ALRB is 35 per cent of the systemic risk buffer</li> </ul> &#160;<br/> At least 75 per cent of the 3.25 per cent minimum leverage ratio requirement and the entirety of any buffers that may apply must be met with CET1 capital.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Analysis of leverage movements</strong><br/> The Group&apos;s fully loaded UK leverage ratio reduced to 5.1&#160;per cent, primarily driven by the reduction in tier 1 capital. The leverage exposure measure increased by &#163;4.9 billion during the period largely reflecting the increase in the SFT exposure measure, an increase in financial assets at fair value through other comprehensive income and the recognition of the right-of-use asset following the introduction of IFRS 16.<br/> &#160;<br/> On a pro forma basis the UK leverage ratio reduced to 5.1&#160;per cent from 5.6&#160;per cent pro forma at 31&#160;December 2018, reflecting the reduction in the pro forma fully loaded tier 1 capital position.<br/> The derivatives exposure measure, representing derivative financial instruments per the balance sheet net of deconsolidation and derivatives adjustments, reduced by &#163;0.1 billion during the period.<br/> &#160;<br/> The SFT exposure measure, representing SFT assets per the balance sheet net of deconsolidation and other SFT adjustments, increased by &#163;1.2 billion during the period, largely reflecting an increase in volumes, partially offset through netting adjustments and a reduction in the counterparty credit risk add-on.<br/> &#160;<br/> Off-balance sheet items increased by &#163;0.2 billion during the period, primarily reflecting new residential mortgage offers placed, offset in part by a net reduction in corporate and securitisation financing facilities.<br/> &#160;<br/> The average UK leverage ratio of 5.1&#160;per cent over the quarter largely reflected the reduction in the tier 1 capital position following the redemption of an AT1 capital instrument called in April.<br/><br/><strong>CAPITAL MANAGEMENT

As at 30 June 2019 no additional capital relief has been recognised.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Stress testing</strong><br/> The Group undertakes a wide-ranging programme of stress testing providing a comprehensive view of the potential impacts arising from the risks to which the Group and its key legal entities are exposed. One of the most important uses of stress testing is to assess the resilience of the operational and strategic plans of the Group and its legal entities to adverse economic conditions and other key vulnerabilities. As part of this programme the Group conducted a macro-economic stress test of the four year operating plan in the first quarter of the year.<br/> &#160;<br/> The Group also participates in the UK wide Annual Cyclical Scenario stress tests run by the Bank of England. In the 2018 Bank of England stress test the Group exceeded the capital and leverage hurdles after the application of management actions and was not required to take any action as a result of the test. The Group is currently participating in the 2019 Bank of England stress test and, having submitted its results at the end of June, is awaiting the Bank of England&apos;s publication of the industry-wide results in the fourth quarter.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Regulatory capital developments</strong><br/> There continue to be a number of significant developments surrounding regulatory capital rules. These include PRA and EBA policy changes on mortgage risk-weighted asset modelling, EU revisions to the Capital Requirements Directive and Regulation that have resulted in the publications of CRD V and CRR 2, and the final Basel III reforms that were published in December 2017 and will introduce changes to the standardised and modelled approaches for certain risk types, including credit and operational risk, along with an aggregate output floor that is due to be implemented in full by 2027. The majority of these changes will be implemented over the coming years with the final Basel III reforms still subject to adoption via European and UK legislative processes. The implementation of some areas, and associated Pillar 2 offsets, will be at the discretion of the PRA.<br/> &#160;<br/><strong>Half-year Pillar 3 disclosures </strong><br/> The Group will publish a condensed set of half-year Pillar 3 disclosures in August, prepared in accordance with the revised European Banking Authority (EBA) guidelines on Pillar 3 disclosure formats and frequency that were issued in December 2016.<br/> &#160;<br/> A copy of the half-year Pillar 3 disclosures will be available to view from August at:<br/><a href="https://link.cockpit.eqs.com/cgi-bin/fncls.ssp?fn=redirect&amp;url=319cfb64ffbd649dddb50ab425c73d3b&amp;application_id=849255&amp;site_id=acquiremedia_html&amp;application_name=news"><em>https://www.lloydsbankinggroup.com/investors/financial-performance/</em></a><br/> &#160;<br/> &#160;<br/> This information is provided by RNS, the news service of the London Stock Exchange.
