As the amount of ex-pat

Postby theparson » Mon May 07, 2012 8:21 pm

As the amount of ex-pat money is dwindling (people returning to the U.K) the banks are desperate to get your NEW money and will offer good rates as a carrot to move from your existing banks. Play them off against each other, adding at least a half percentage point to what other banks will give you.
A good bank would keep its existing customers permanently on the top rate, but I dont think there is such a thing as a good bank anywhere in the world.
Play them at their own game.

I've been with Garanti bank since I moved here 4 months ago. Like many other banks, the rate is based on your level of investment but mine has been excellent and has stayed the same every month without discussion.
