The rates at HDBank are 5.9%, SeABank is 5.8%, and BacABank offers 5.7%. VietinBank and BIDV both offer 5.3%, and Vietcombank 5.1%.

Deposit interest rates have been falling since April as banks struggled to find borrowers amid economic challenges. Relaxed monetary policies helped banks have high cash resources.

The average deposit interest rate range in 2017-2018 period was around 8.86-8.91% a year.

In lending, banks now ask for a 7-10% fixed rate and 11-14% floating rate.
