Eurobank EFG actively supports savings and housing activities

Eurobank EFG reacts readily to the further reduction of the base rate of the European Central Bank (ECB) by 25 basis points, by reducing its interest rates for loans to individuals and businesses by up to 50 basis points. Moreover, the Bank does not reduce its rates on deposits, including the Mega Savings Account.
In this way, the Bank materializes its commitment to stand alongside its customers, including households, small businesses and professionals, and support the Greek economy with concrete measures.
In specific, the Bank:
Ι. Keeps interest rates on deposits unchanged. It also maintains the rate of its basic high-interest savings account, Mega Savings Account, allowing its customers to enjoy a much higher performance compared to simple savings accounts, providing thus a substantial incentive to boost the savings of the Greek family.
II. Reduces loan interest for Private Clients and Small Businesses by up to 50 basis points.
III. Reduces the base rate of mortgage loans for the acquisition of primary, secondary or holiday residences and loans for the acquisition of business premises by 50 basis points.
IV. Building on recent state measures to strengthen the housing and building market, it finances up to 100% of the market value of the property for the acquisition of primary, secondary or holiday residences and business premises.
 
In detail, the bank’s interest rates are now as follows:
