Olena Rudyk, head of department on work with small and medium-sized businesses of First Ukrainian International Bank:
"There is a slight variation of the effective rates in the summer, but they were in spots and had no significant impact on the market in general. Our view is that in the autumn the indicated positive trend will continue. Reduce in the values of effective rates is possible as an individual approach to medium-sized customers, which are noted for a more structured and sustainable business, which is inherent in a low level of risk. We do not expect sharp fluctuations in the cost of financing corporate clients in autumn. However, now there are situations were banks declare lower interest rates that are compensated by increasing the initial fee or introducing monthly fees. In this connection, we can assume the possible redistribution of prices between the interest rate and the fees in order to attract more attention of clients.”
