BCR Banca pentru locuinte (BCR BpL) has closed over 165,000 saving-crediting contracts for housing in the first six months of the year, worth over RON 4.6 billion. The average value of a contract during this period was EUR 25,000 – 30,000. According to its own data, BCR BpL is the leader on the market of saving-crediting financial products for housing acquisitions.
“Just like the year 2009, the first half of this year has also been a very good period for BCR BpL. We have succeeded in becoming market leader in terms of closed contracts, in spite of the hard economic times that the Romanian economy is facing. Especially in such times, customers choose to save their money through safe systems, like saving-crediting contracts in RON and with a fixed interest rate. Although it is still very recent in Romania, the saving-crediting system for housing has the potential for a fast development and we are confident that it will become very popular”, said Alexandru Ciobanu, president of BCR BpL.
BCR BpL was launched in July 2008 and it is part of the BCR Group.
