Hungarian Borrowers Repay $783 Million in Foreign-Currency Loans

Nov. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Hungarian borrowers repaid 174.8 billion forint ($783 million) in foreign-currency loans by Oct. 30 under a government program allowing the termination of mortgages at below-market rates, financial regulator PSZAF said.

The 29,427 loans repaid amounted to 130.6 billion forint at the discounted rates of 180 forint per Swiss franc, 250 per euro and 200 forint per 100 yen, PSZAF said on its website today.

Hungarian lawmakers approved legislation on Sept. 19 that allows early repayment of foreign-currency mortgages, forcing lenders to take losses.
