PostFinance Lowers Interest Yield Rates

Banking, General News, 03.11.2014
PostFinance has once again lowered interest rates and slid further towards the middle-of-the-road compared to competitors.

PostFinance is putting the brakes on interest yields. This decision can be justified by the general trend towards lower interest rates. But PostFinance’s yield rates have also steadily worsened in relation to rates offered by its competitors.

With its latest move to lower rates, PostFinance has slid further towards average, less competitive yield rates. A comparison with other banks is highly recommended.
