HCMC – Following deposit rate cuts early this month for tenors from six months onward, many local banks have continued to lower rates for the remaining tenors, with some even offering an annual rate of 3% for a one-month term.
Among the private bank group, Techcombank has revised down the rates for over-the-counter deposits of a one-month term from 3.5%-4% to 3.15%-3.65%, depending on the age of depositors and the sum of deposits.
Customers under 50 years of age making deposits worth less than VND1 billion at Techcombank will receive an annual rate of 3.15%. If they want to get the interest before maturity, the rate will be capped at 3%, the lowest in the local market for a one-month tenor.
Also, the rates for other tenors at Techcombank were down by 0.2-0.3 percentage points compared to the beginning of July.
Similarly, Kienlongbank reduced the rate for one-month deposits to 3.75% from 4%. PGBank set the rate at 3.95% instead of the previous 4.15%, while MB cut it from 4% to 3.8%.
