1 The maximum interest rate of a credit institution is measured as follows:
— Maximum interest rates on deposits available to any client (including potential ones) without any limitations and preliminary conditions are taken into account. Deposits for special client categories (pensioners, children) and purposes (social, humanitarian, etc.) are excluded.
— Compound interest rates on deposits are out of scope.
— Interest rates that are effective provided that certain conditions are fulfilled (regular bank card turnover, a permanent minimum balance on a bank card, etc.) are not taken into account.
— Combined deposit products, i.e. deposits with additional conditions, are not considered. Such additional conditions for higher interest accrual may comprise, among other things, purchase of investment units in a certain amount, opening of an investment account, conclusion of an agreement on investment or endowment life insurance, buying an extra service package, etc.
— Deposits with maturities divided into periods with varying interest rates are out of scope.
The average maximum interest rate is calculated as an arithmetic mean of the maximum interest rates of the top ten credit institutions.
