Deposit interest rates in Bulgaria
Some Bulgarian banks offer very attractive deposit rates when compared to other locations in the EU. The first 100 000 EUR of the deposit are always guaranteed by the Bulgarian Government. While in the last few years, the deposit rates have decreased significantly worldwide, Bulgaria still offers one of the highest interest rates on bank deposit.
The banking products are offered by licensed banking institutions and are always covered by the Bulgarian deposit guarantee scheme.
