M4 comprises notes and coin in circulation outside the Bank of England and banking institutions in the U.K., plus non-bank private sector sterling deposits held with U.K. banking institutions. Beginning July 2009, this serie refers to M4 excluding intermediate OFCs (M4ex)(http://www.bankofengland.co.uk/mfsd/iadb/notesiadb/m4adjusted.htm). M4 differs from Money plus Quasi-Money (line 35l) because it excludes private sector foreign currency deposits, and sterling and foreign currency deposits of official entities (local authorities and public enterprises).
