Dr. Asoka Jinadasa, Chairman of Multi Finance Company said that Multi Finance offered higher interest rates for fixed deposits in Septmebr, to increase savings. “For example, our national savings ratio is far too low.
To tempt people to save more, we are offering a higher interest rate for fixed deposits made during the month of September. This special offer would provide us the opportunity to educate and inculcate the saving habit among the general public. Also, to guard against future shocks, we will continue to ensure that our assets exceed our liabilities by a very safe margin,” said Dr. Jinadasa.
