Russians often began to repay loans ahead of schedule amid the crisis
Bank customers in Russia began to actively close loans. The number of early repayments in March increased by 4,8% compared with February and by 8,4% in annual terms.
As the RBC referring to the statistics of Equifax credit history bureau, the share of loans closed ahead of the schedule since the beginning of the year has grown to 45%. Borrowers in March closed ahead of schedule 1,41 million loans. Most actively repaid loans in cash, loans for the purchase of goods and credit card debt, which accounted for 67% of all early payments in the month.
The Russians early repay the mortgage. In March, borrowers paid 27,3 thousand housing loans - 2,5% less than a month earlier, but more compared to the same period last year.
