Here's what I found in Donald Gallup's "T.S. Eliot: A Bibliography
(A Revised and Extended Edition)" (Harcourt Brace & World, 1969):
Gallup's entry E6a (pp. 362-3 in the revised edition) has a note from
Eliot: "at the time mentioned, 1924-25, I was writing monthly articles
on foreign currency movements for the Lloyds Bank monthly magazine."
Eliot also indicated in the note that the articles were unsigned and
both his predecessor and successor wrote articles. Gallup gave the
magazine's name as "Lloyds Bank Economic Review" although I've seen a
magazine from the 60s-70s of "Lloyds Bank Review."
The magazine was an internal one and so is not likely to be found
outside the bank. But, besides libraries, it might appear at the
National Archives. I did an online search there without any luck at
http://nationalarchives.gov.uk (I did notice that they have a subsite
at http://yourarchives.nationalarchives.gov.uk that uses Wikipedia's
Anyway, elsewhere I found the person to contact at Lloyds to be:
