Malaysian banks race to get deposits


The race for deposits comes after CIMB Group Bhd, the second largest lender, fixed its fixed deposit rates at 3.4% for a 12-month tenure two weeks ago from 3.15% previously. Analysts described the rate set by CIMB as aggressive and could trigger another round of competition for low cost funds.
