Baku / 01.08.17 / Turan: At a meeting of the Board of the Central Bank of Azerbaijan on August 1, it was decided to keep the interest rate and other parameters of the interest corridor at the level of 15% (low limit - 10%, upper limit - 18%).
The rationale for this decision was the continued risk of inflation, although according to the CBA management, inflation expectations have decreased to an extent.
In the CBA they believe there has been a growth trend in the indicators of the real sector and economic activity. To manage the liquidity of the fiscal and financial sectors, the CBA increased the money supply of the economy. According to CBA polls among households, the level of consumer confidence is growing. Indicators of the external sector have increased: since the beginning of the year non-oil exports have increased by 27.9%, and imports have decreased by 15.7%. The surplus of the external trade balance has amounted to $ 1.9 billion. Due to this, the balance of the currency market and the national currency rate remains. The stability of the manat creates a tendency to de-dollarization of the economy.
The next meeting of the Board of the CBA is scheduled for September 18. -08D-

Baku / 01.08.17 / Turan: Payment of compensations to depositors of four closed banks, Deka Bank, Credo Bank, Para Bank and Zamin Bank, is over, said the Azerbaijan Deposit Insurance Fund (ADIF).
According to the legislation, payments for deposits are made within one year from the first publication on their payment.
Nevertheless, on an individual basis, depositors can extend the process of paying compensation by submitting to ADIF documents that confirm the inability to seek compensation within a year.
As noted in the Fund's message, such cases include service in the Armed Forces, serious illness and other cases specified in Article 11 of the Procedure "On the Procedure for Payment of Compensations".
The licenses of all four banks were withdrawn in 2016 due to the inconsistency of their total capital with the minimum requirement of the regulator [50 million manat] and default to the creditors.
The amount of compensations paid to Deka Bank, Credo Bank, Para Bank and Zamin Bank:
|Banks||Total deposits (millions of AZN)||Insured deposits (millions of AZN)||Compensable deposits (millions of AZN)||Paid compensations (millions of AZN)||Share of paid compensations to total insured deposits (%)||Unpaid compensations (millions of AZN)|
The Azerbaijan Deposit Insurance Fund started its activity on August 13, 2007. The upper limit of the interest rate on insured deposits in foreign currency is three percent. The maximum level of the annual interest rate for insured deposits in the national currency should not exceed 15 percent.
According to the law "On full insurance of deposits," for three years, deposits of the population, the annual interest rate for which does not exceed the maximum level established by the ADIF Board of Trustees, will be insured, regardless of the amount of the deposit.
