Banks raised the fixed-term rate: how much they pay at the start of July

Eight banks have raised interest rates in an attempt to attract depositors’ pesos. But they are still below inflation.

The interest on passive repos is at the level of 40% APR, so the banks set their average rate between 30% and 35%. This is between 80% and 75% less than what it was in March, when the rate was 110%.
