Dana Demetrian,
Vice-President of BCR Retail & Private Banking

“BCR’s strong financial resources and excellent liquidity allowed us to continue decreasing interest rates chargeable on mortgage loans in RON, in order to meet customers with one of the best offers. We went below the psychological threshold of 5%/year for offers with fixed interest rates over the first 5 years and less than 5.5%/year for offers with fixed interest rates over the first 10 years. At the moment, fixed interest rates for BCR mortgage loans represent a serious competition for all the other offers available on the market. Moreover, our offer regarding a fixed monthly interest rate helps customers take control over their monthly expenditures, which is an essential element when making the correct decision”, stated Dana Demetrian, Vice-President of BCR Retail & Private Banking.

BCR is the first bank in Romania which decided that, beginning with October 2012, it will grant loans only in the currency in which the customers receive their income.
