Interest rates on deposits 2019Dec

Published on 02/04/2020
The interest rate on bank deposits is unchanged in December

The average interest rate on bank deposits is unchanged at 0.58% during the last quarter of 2019. For households, this rate decreases very slightly (-1 basis point), due to a lower remuneration on deposits with agreed maturity up to 2 years. For the non-financial corporations, a rounding effect masks a slight increase driven by deposits with agreed maturity up to 2 years.
The average interest rate on bank deposits is down by 5 basis points over a year (0.63% on December 2018).
