Senior analyst at BCS Premier Sergey Suverov estimated the key rate cut to 4.25%.
According to him, the rate cut is a global trend.
As the expert predicts, the effect may appear towards the end of the year, when both enterprises will receive cheaper loans, and Russians will be able to get cheaper mortgages, which will push the construction industry.
For his part, Grigory Vershinin, an expert of the financial market for brokerage and dealer activities, and managing partner of Lavnik Investments, expressed the opinion in an interview with FAN that the interest on bank deposits will not exceed the key rate.
Nevertheless, the expert believes, one should not expect that there will be an outflow of funds from banks.
“The majority of the population still prefers such a familiar financial instrument in management as bank deposits,” he said.
In addition, Vershinin believes that the attractiveness of loans, including mortgage loans, will increase.
Following the meeting of the Board of Directors, the Bank of Russia lowered the key rate to 4.25% per annum.
