As announced during the February Press conference, RCI Banque entered the new savings market with its UK subsidiary RCI Bank.
RCI Bank launched an easy access account that now sits jointly at the top of the table, the Freedom Savings Account. The straightforward account has a starting balance of £100, with a maximum balance of £1 million, no penalties, notice periods, tiered rates, gimmicks or small print. RCI Bank plans to launch a suite of additional products later in the year.

RCI Bank commits to reinvest collected funds in its auto loan business for Renault and Nissan brands and offers simple, efficient and secure savings products.

For 2016, RCI Banque confirms the ambitious target of funding 30% of its requirements through retail deposits

Collecting retail deposits is a long-term investment in the company's diversified funding strategy. Collection targets will be adjusted in function of the growth in RCI Banque's funding requirements, as well as in function of the cost of funds on the capital markets in each country.
