Alfa-Bank did not change the deposit rates and offered 8% per annum on deposits for 6 to 12 months and 9% per annum on guarantees lasting 18-24 months.

PUMB ranks third in terms of the profitability of deposit rates. One-year deposits provide 8.5% of annual income. For a shorter period – 8.2% (9 months), 8% (6 months) and 7.5% per year (3 months).
