**Deposit Profitability**

The results of monitoring of interest rates on deposits in 100 major retail banks evidence a continuing decrease in deposit profitability. According to the results for 9M 2017 most banks (74 out of 100) cut their rates. In 7 banks rates increased and in 19 they remained unchanged.
