Survey shows pensioners are most reliable borrowers

Pensioners are the most reliable about repaying their debts, according to "European Payment Habits,” a survey by the EOC financial company.

Pensioners are the most reliable about repaying their debts, according to "European Payment Habits,” a survey by the EOC financial company.

The least reliable borrowers are people close to the end of their productive age, i.e. around 60 years old. From the regional viewpoint, the people in Žilina and Bratislava were the best at repaying their debts, while those in the Košice and Nitra Regions were the worst.

One of the survey’s conclusions is that a long maturity on a claim doesn’t guarantee that it will be paid on time. Therefore, the current trend on the claims market in Slovakia, as well as in the world, is to reduce maturity.

In 2007, EOS KSI Slovensko processed over Sk4.3 billion in claims. Its clients on the Slovak market are almost all banks and insurance companies, credit and telecommunication companies, as well as production and trade companies. SITA
