The Bank of Russia forecasts the growth of total Bank deposits in Russia in 2017 at the level of 7-9%, and it can be towards the upper end of this forecast, said the Deputy Chairman of the Central Bank Vasily Pozdyshev.

«The growth of deposits is projected 7 to 9 percent. I think it will be closer to 9% than to 7%,» said Pozdyshev in an interview with RIA Novosti.

This prediction, based on his words, it makes no sense now to be adjusted because it’s only been one full quarter of the year, leaves only the statistics for the first four months, and it is not surprising.

«To correct earlier, must be at least six months. So, while statistics of the banking system is consistent with our expectations,» he said.

Deposits of individuals in the first four months of 2017 showed growth of 0.3% — 24,27 a trillion rubles, it follows from the last «Review of the banking sector of the Russian Federation» prepared by the regulator.
