On 26 February 2009 ZAO Raiffeisenbank added to its range of bank products for individual customers by offering them the «Multicurrency» deposit. The new deposit allows you, within the term of the deposit, to transfer funds from one currency to another without losing any interest. Moreover, for deposits in each currency an interest rate is set that does not depend on the balance in the deposit.
According to the terms of the fixed-term «Multicurrency» deposit, the initial sum deposited must total at least 50,000 roubles in all currencies. The minimum balance in the deposit, in each currency, may not be less than 1 rouble, 1 US dollar and 1 euro. There are no restrictions on topping up the deposit.
Interest rates on the «Multicurrency» deposit range from 6.5 to 12% p.a. in roubles, 2 to 5.5% p.a. in US dollars, and from 3.5 to 5.5% in euro depending on the term of the deposit.
«I am confident that the «Multicurrency» deposit will be of interest to a wide range of customers, since it not only gives the depositor a high yield but also enables him to protect his savings against exchange-rate fluctuations by switching to another currency without losing accrued interest», comments Andrei Stepanenko, a member of the ZAO Raiffeisenbank Board and Head of its Consumer Banking Directorate.
Full information on the conditions for placing private individuals’ funds in deposits can be obtained from ZAO Raiffeisenbank’s official website, under «Deposits».
