Collector Bank launches savings account in Finland

Collector Bank is now strengthening its offering towards private individuals in Finland by launching a savings account with an interest rate of 0.6 percent. This will entail a reduction in the bank’s currency exposure by offering deposits in EUR, since part of the company’s lending is in the same currency.

Today, the Finnish operations include personal loans, payment solutions for e-commerce and retail chains, property financing, company credits and factoring. Now that private individuals in Finland are being offered savings accounts with interest, the market position will be further strengthened, while it will also be possible to finance lending with deposits in the same currency.

“We see the launch of a savings account as a positive addition to our product portfolio in Finland. By offering a savings account with interest, we improve our clients’ private finances and, at the same time, we gain inflows in EUR,” says Liza Nyberg, CEO of Collector Bank.

The new product launch is part of development that further strengthens Collector’s role as a leading digital player in the financial markets in Sweden, Finland and Norway. The Finnish savings account currently has an interest rate of 0.60 percent, as well as free deposits and withdrawals. Just as with the Swedish savings account, the Finnish one is covered by a government deposit guarantee of up to EUR 100,000.
