Resurs takes the lead to raise savings interest to 1.30 per cent

Resurs Bank is raising the interest rate on deposits for its variable savings accounts by 0.55 basis points to 1.30 per cent. Resurs is the first to offer private individuals and businesses an interest rate of a full 1.30 per cent on a normal savings account. This increase in interest rate comes into effect on 1 September 2022.

“Savings are an important part of well-balanced everyday finances, and saving with Resurs should be attractive, simple and secure. With a substantial raise of the interest rate to 1.30%, we have an excellent offering in the market,” says Nils Carlsson, CEO of Resurs Bank.

Private individuals can fill out a simple online application to open a variable savings account on the Resurs website. The variable accounts yield interest from the first krona with no commitment period, no fees, and unlimited free withdrawals, and is covered by Sweden’s state deposit insurance*.
