Amid uncertainties surrounding the rate, Standard Chartered Bank Korea, the local unit of the London-based banking group, has been holding an event rewarding customers with benefits from checking account interest rates, the bank said Thursday.
Those who create a My Plus Account from Feb. 13 to July 31 and deposit over 10 million won ($8,900) are provided with an interest rate of 1.3 percent in the first month. The interest rate rises to 1.4 percent in the second month and 1.5 percent in the third. It returns to 1.3 percent from the fourth month.
For those depositing between 3 million won and 10 million won, the interest rate rises to 1.1 percent in the third month, the company said.
“The event allows users to enjoy cash liquidity and a high interest rate at the same time,” said a bank official.
My Plus Account was created in May 2015 and has drawn some 4.5 trillion won in deposits.
