Banking, General News, 07.10.2015

On November 1, 2015, PostFinance interest yields will drop once again. The financial services provider justifies the cut by citing the ongoing negative interest rate environment and a shortage of investment opportunities. Additionally, PostFinance is still unable to offer its own mortgage and loan solutions, but must rely on partner banks to provide these services.

With regards to yield rates, PostFinance remains conservative and the yields which it offers are among the lowest in Switzerland.
