BOV

BOV has announced that it is changing its credit interest rates on fixed term deposits.

Savers are set to miss out, as interest rates for fixed-term deposit accounts of more than six months are set to be slashed.

The new rates indicate that for fixed-term accounts of one year and over, the interest rate will be set at 0.25 per cent, as opposed to the previous variable rates, which went from 0.3 per cent to 0.7 per cent for fixed terms of one to five years.

However, the bank makes clear that interest rates on existing fixed-term deposits will remain valid until maturity.

The revised rates will apply for term deposits opened or renewed as from 2nd March 2021.
