Dubbed Inversión a la vista en Euros, the account will join similar ones the bank already provides in dollars and colones.
“The objective is to offer interested clients a greater diversification in currency for their investments,” according to Violeta Fernández, Banco Nacional’s corporate relations director.
Those interested would have to maintain a €2,000 limit. All withdrawals must be for at least €500. Interest rates range from 1.15 to 1.40 percent.
