Stock of household deposits growing at a rapid pace

Share

At the end of November 2019, the total stock of household deposits amounted to EUR 95.6 bn and the average interest rate on the deposits was 0.11%. The vast majority of household deposits, EUR 82.6 bn, are held in transaction accounts. The stock of transaction accounts grew by EUR 880 million during November and the average interest rate declined to 0.07%.

Deposits with an agreed maturity and other deposits account for a lesser share of the total stock of household deposits. At the end of November 2019, deposits with an agreed maturity totalled EUR 4.8 bn and other deposits EUR 8.2 bn. The interest rate on the stock of deposits with an agreed maturity has no longer declined in 2019, standing at 0.51% in November. Credit institutions apply a higher interest rate on deposits of over 1 year (0.94% in November 2019) than on deposits with a shorter maturity (0.28% in November 2019). Deposits of over one year include e.g. ASP deposits – savings deposits for first home purchase – on which banks pay an interest of 1%. In November, households concluded EUR 235 million of new agreements on deposits with an agreed maturity, and the average interest rate on these was 0.15%.

Growth in household deposits has picked up noticeably since the beginning of 2019. The acceleration started at the turn of the year, and in November household deposits already grew at an annual rate of 9.4%. The pick-up in the growth rate is particularly due to the high popularity of transaction accounts. The growth rate of funds in transaction accounts accelerated to 10% at the beginning of 2019 and was 11.3% in November. At the same time, the popularity of other deposits has increased slightly, and in November the annual growth rate of these deposits was 5.8%. The rapid contraction recorded in recent years in deposits with an agreed maturity slowed slightly, too. In November 2019, the stock of these deposits contracted at an annual rate of –11.2%. Growth rates of deposits can also be analysed now with the bank dashboard.

Loans

Households’ drawdowns of new housing loans in November 2019 amounted to EUR 1.7 bn, up by EUR 100 million on the corresponding period a year earlier. At the end of November, the stock of euro-denominated housing loans totalled EUR 100.3 bn and the annual growth rate of the stock was 2.7%. Household credit at end-November comprised EUR 16.5 bn in consumer credit and EUR 17.7 bn in other loans.

Drawdowns of new loans by non-financial corporations (excl. overdrafts and credit card credit) amounted to EUR 1.9 bn in November. The average interest rate on these declined from October, to 2.19%. At the end of November, the stock of euro-denominated loans to non-financial corporations totalled EUR 91.2 bn, of which loans to housing corporations accounted for EUR 34.7 bn.

Mökkilainoja nostettiin ennätysmäärä kesäkuussa31.7.2020 13:00:00 EESTTiedote

Uusia vapaa-ajanasuntolainoja (mökkilainoja) nostettiin kesäkuussa 2020 enemmän kuin koskaan aikaisemmin, 154 milj. euron edestä, mikä on jopa 64 % enemmän kuin vuosi sitten vastaavana aikana. Uusien vapaa-ajanasuntolainojen sovittu vuosikorko oli kesäkuussa 0,96 %. Suuren nostomäärän myötä vapaa-ajanasuntolainakanta kasvoi 3,9 mrd. euroon, ja kannan kasvuvauhti (6 %) oli kesäkuussa nopeinta sitten vuoden 2013 elokuun. Vapaa-ajanasuntolainakannan osuus kaikista kotitalouslainoista oli kesäkuussa noin 3 %. Vapaa-ajanasuntolainojen takaisinmaksuajat ovat pidentyneet viime vuosina tavallisten asuntolainojen tapaan. Kesäkuussa 2020 nostettujen uusien vapaa-ajanasuntolainojen keskimääräinen takaisinmaksuaika, 17 vuotta 11 kuukautta, oli kymmenen kuukautta pidempi kuin vuosi sitten kesäkuussa. Myös asuntolainoja nostettiin vilkkaasti kesäkuussa tavanomaista hiljaisemman toukokuun jälkeen.
