Average Credit Card Interest Rates Hit All-time High / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: MoneyFacts

The credit card market continues to be inundated with introductory interest-free deals, but behind the scenes the latest research from Moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that the average purchase rate on all credit cards has hit an all-time high of 21.6% APR*.

Cardholders with a high interest credit card may not be fully aware of how much they pay over the long term or how much they could save by switching to a better deal. For instance, sticking with a high interest card could mean that it will take almost four years to clear a debt of as little as £1,000.

People's QE: Central Bankers War on Savings / Personal_Finance / War on Cash

By: Sol_Palha

"It is not in the world of ideas that life is lived. Life is lived for better or worse in life, and to a man in life, his life can be no more absurd than it can be the opposite of absurd, whatever that opposite may be." ~ Archibald Macleish

QE for the people was actually proposed by Jeremy Corbyn last year in Britain last year, and it did not sit too well with, central bankers. Mark Carney Governor of the Bank England had the audacity to state that QE for the people would remove "fiscal discipline". Central bankers have been anything but disciplined; they have systematically created every boom and bust cycle for the past 50 plus years. To create a boom cycle, they loosen the cash spigots and vice versa. We are not stating that QE for the people is a good idea, but it's as good as any idea the central bankers have floated over the past 3-5 decades.

Savers Brace for More Savings Interest Rate Cuts / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Data from Moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that rate reductions in the savings market have now outweighed rate rises for four consecutive months, the first time this has happened since daily rate change monitoring began.*

In January, Moneyfacts recorded just 21 savings rate rises, with only one deal posting a significant increase of 0.20%. Disappointingly, rate reductions over the same period completely eclipsed this figure, with the number of rate decreases over the month standing at a staggering 138, with some deals falling by as much as 0.75%.

Creditors: What’s Behind Their Interest in Investing in Your Debt? / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

According to some definitions, debts are financial obligations defined by law, that must be repaid to a creditor or lender who have invested certain amount of money and have decide to take a risk by borrowing money. In other words, they were fully aware that the loan taker might not be able to pay off the debt. But, it is an interesting fact that even though there is great risk involved in this activity and there are many people who fail to repay the money, the number of lenders and creditors is growing. So, why is this happening?

Savers Wait for a Miracle as the Savings Market Stagnates / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

The savings market has suffered considerably over the past few years thanks to lending initiatives and a low bank base rate, and the latest research from Moneyfacts.co.uk shows that savings rates have been on a clear downward trajectory as a result.

Since 2011, the average rate on a two-year fixed bond has almost halved, down from 3.20% five years ago to just 1.72% today. A similar pattern can be seen on longer-term bonds, with five-year fixed rates recording a drop from 4.01% to just 2.59% over the same period. Easy access deals have not been left unscathed from poor returns either, with a staggering 75% of the market paying 1% or less.
