March 14 (Bloomberg) -- Greece’s banking system saw more than 3 billion euros ($4 billion) withdrawn by businesses and households last month, Naftemporiki said, citing bank estimates.
Early figures for March show a stabilization in the amount of money being withdrawn and banks reckon the successful conclusion of Greece’s debt-swap means some funds will return, the Athens-based newspaper reported today.
Deposits dropped to 169 billion euros in January from 174 billion in December, the Bank of Greece said on Feb. 29.
