The banking crisis in Europe is expanding. European banks have no liquidity and the negative interest rates have done so much harm to traditional banking in Europe, we are witnessing excessive fees unfolding. HSBC is raising its overdraft rate of 39.9% for UK customers from March 2020. Santander’s latest bank to set a 40% overdraft rate. Savings accounts which were soliciting people at 3% are dropping to 1%.
Clearly, fees are escalating dramatically and what banks are willing to pay is collapsing, The spread between their cost and what they are charging is rising and this also seems to be taking place with the turn in the Economic Confidence Model.
