Banks raise rates on currency deposits. Literally for several days the companies entering in top-20 have acted this way. Why it becomes and as far as investors risk? Photo: depositphotos.com Banks raise rates on deposits in currency. At the beginning of October the stakes were raised by Raiffeisenbank, VTB, Russian Standard and Gazprombank, Vedomosti writes. Literally for the first four days of month these four banks from top-20 have improved conditions of attraction of dollars from the population. VTB has increased also the yield on deposits in euro. For deposits for the sum from 3000 euros the bank offers up to 0,95% per annum now. Meanwhile in September clients of Sberbank have taken away nearly 1 billion dollars from currency deposits. In August outflow of currency deposits from Sberbank exceeded 1,1 billion dollars. Why do banks raise rates of currency deposits? In August and September banks have faced noticeable outflow of currency deposits. Expectation of sanctions of the USA against state banks hasn't kept itself waiting long. The fear of converting of these deposits to rubles and in general lack of understanding as such serious sanctions can affect work of state banks, have affected.
