Latvian Banks May Charge Non-Resident Deposits Interest

Feb. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Latvian banks are considering charging interest on non-resident deposits, Dienas Bizness reported, citing Kristaps Zakulis, the head of the country’s bank regulator.

Non-resident deposits made up 48.9 percent of system-wide deposits in December, or about 6.1 billion lati ($11.8 billion), the Riga-based newspaper said. About 80 percent of the non-resident deposits are held on demand at Latvian banks, the newspaper said.
