interest rates on BG deposit accounts?

Postby demoboy » Sat Mar 15, 2008 11:52 am

Hi, Can anyone tell me the current intrest rate on deposit accounts in BG? Or indeed if they have accounts similar to our building societies, ie. pay intrest with instant access. thanks.

I deposit funds with Postbank in BGN and receive 7% interest per annum, this year they're offering 7.25%. You can deposit it other funds such as USD and EURO but the rate varies respectively.

For anyone fortunate enough to have any money sitting in a Bugarian Savings account, can they tell me what is the interest rate you receive ?

Is it higher than 6%.

If it is , what is to stop people from the UK, transfering thier savings to Bulgaria, or wherever ?

Is a deposit account different ? :?

It's because moving funds to and fro like that (AND incurring bank transfer and exchange fees and commissions) would easily eat up those 2 or 3 percentage points gained in interest rate.

Hi Demoboy
I am getting 7% for GBN deposit a/c at Postbank at the moment. You can make 2 withdrawals per month without losing any interest.
