Asian banks' liquidity coverage ratios exceed 100%

Funding and liquidity will remain Asian banks' credit strength.

Asian banks are mostly deposit-funded with liquid balance sheets, and their reliance on wholesale funding sources is moderate, according to Moody's Investors Service.

Indian banks benefited from deposit inflows following the de-monetisation.
