We will remind, according to statistics of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) after a long period of inflow of deposits of Ukrainians still have started to withdraw money from banks. This phenomenon, according to financial experts, there are several reasons:

  • seasonality: money off for vacation, repairs/construction, education, etc.;
  • the recent easing of rules of a conclusion of money abroad;
  • the growth of prices for goods and services for which people have to actively spend their savings.
  • the decrease in Bank interest rates on deposits, which lowered the yield of deposits below the level of actual inflation.
  • the intensification of the speculative mood of the population: people are more likely to convert their savings into different currencies, trying to win on the difference in rates and interest rates on deposits.
