Statistics show that Vietnam’s interest rate level in 2021 has fallen to the lowest level in the past 10 years. Therefore, experts say that interest rates in 2022 may increase again when the demand for credit capital increases to serve production after the pandemic.
Bao Viet Securities Company (BVSC) said that Vietnam’s CPI inflation rate after the first two months of the year reached 1.68%, relatively low compared to recent years. However, in the coming time, inflation pressure will be higher when the prices of many materials tend to increase sharply, especially gasoline prices, which will cause banks to increase deposit rates and maintain interest rates. positive real to suck money from the market.
BVSC forecasts that the interest rate level in 2022 will be difficult to decrease further than the end of 2021 and will likely increase slightly (around 0.25-0.5 points), especially in the second half of 2022.
VNDirect Securities Joint Stock Company also forecasts that deposit interest rates in 2022 will increase by 0.3-0.5 percentage points. Increased capital mobilization demand on the back of increased credit and inflationary pressures plus competition from other attractive investment channels such as real estate and securities could drive interest rates up.
The US Federal Reserve (Fed) has officially announced to raise the reference interest rate by 0.25 percentage points, to around 0.25 – 0.5%; At the same time, it signaled that there could be 6 more rate hikes from here to the end of 2022. This is the first time the Fed has raised interest rates since 2018, due to fears of record-high inflation.

This will essentially affect the cost of capital in the international market. Currently, VIB is one of the banks aiming to mobilize capital internationally, with an interest rate that is said to be more attractive and stable than the domestic residential deposit market.
At the moment, the pressure on capital costs is also pressing on some banks when deposit interest rates in the market are showing signs of increasing.
Statistics of SSI Securities Company show that deposit interest rates for businesses have inched up at some big banks with an increase of 20 basis points for terms over 6 months. With increasing inflationary pressure, SSI believes that the interest rate level has bottomed and the rate of interest rate increase in the coming time will depend on the recovery speed of the economy and inflation.
