UniCredit Bank accepts temporarily available funds from its clients for term deposit. For these purposes, the client and the Bank conclude in advance an “Agreement on the General Terms and Conditions for Placing Available Funds of Legal Entities in ZAO UniCredit Bank”. Funds on deposit are accounted for in deposit accounts.
The minimum amount acceptable for deposit accounts is: 500,000 rubles for ruble accounts; $100,000 and 100,000 euro for deposits in U.S. dollars and Euro respectively. The holding period for funds on deposit varies from 1 day to 12 months. It is possible to keep money on deposit for periods of more than 12 months. The minimum amount and the period of the deposit for other currencies must be agreed upon by the Bank and the client for each individual case.
Funds deposited with the bank accrue interest at a rate agreed upon with the client; interest is paid on the last date of the deposit term. Interest rates on ruble deposits are determined on the basis of rates on the Russian inter-bank market; on foreign currency deposits they are based on the rates offered by the top Western banks. Interest rates on deposits may vary during the course of the day depending on the market. The interest rate is fixed for the entire term of the deposit.
Funds placed in a fixed-term deposit are debited from the settlement or any other account of the client with UniCredit Bank and, upon expiry of the term of the deposit, are credited to the same account.
