26/3/2012 - Crédit Municipal de Paris and the repurchase of credit
In recent days, a major advertising campaign has been launched by Crédit Municipal de Paris on the theme of credit redemption ... To show that its offer is different, the CMP indicates "We do not see credit as a product to be sold but as a a service to render you "... Laudable intention and which suggests that the CMP offers a different and above all less expensive credit buyback. Especially since the management of the CMP indicates that "too many people do not dare to talk about it with their banker. They do not know which door to knock on ...". There we become more suspicious because it is enough to open a TV program to discover tons of advertisements for the repurchase of credit. To verify that the Municipal Credit is more interesting than the bankers we carried out simulations with our usual comparisons. We therefore compared a loan repurchase of US $ 25,000 over 72 months taken at Sofinco, Paydaynow, Cofinoga and at Crédit Municipal de Paris. The Municipal Credit is the establishment which costs the most with an APR at 10% (the others are between 9.30% and 9.90%) and especially the highest administrative fees at 630 us dollars ... while the competitors evolve between 0 and 375 us dollars… In short, as we usually say, you have to compare!

3/20/2012 - Bank charges ... Europe getting involved?
French banks take an average of US $ 236.49 per year and per consumer. Miscellaneous fees, transaction fees, bank card ... everything is good for billing fees! And in the rest of Europe, it's the same! The European Commission for Financial Services has also just woken up with the voice of Michel Barnier. He indicates that banks are not transparent in their pricing and that they lack "good will" (sic!). So the bad banks are getting slapped on the fingers by Europe ... it will hurt! Brussels will therefore legislate both on the transparency of bank charges, the ease of changing banks for the consumer, but also the accessibility of citizens to a basic banking service ... That the banks rest assured, the committee will present its legislative proposals at the end of 2012 ... By the time all this is put in place, you will have at least been debited twice from your bank card contribution!

3/18/2012 - The French buy fewer cars ... but more expensive!
Contrary to what one might think, in this period of crisis, the French are buying more expensive cars! According to the Committee of French Automobile Manufacturers (CCFA) the average purchase amount of new vehicles in France has increased by 15% and is now 22,800 us dollars. This increase is mainly due to the end of the "scrapping bonus" which allowed the less well-off French to change their vehicle at a lower cost. The premium was mainly used for the purchase of small displacement vehicles. In fact the sales of more expensive cars have not increased ... it is the sales of low end cars that have fallen! Overall, fewer and fewer new cars are being sold in France: -20.2% in February 2012! This is the biggest fall on the European market.

3/16/2012 - It's not easy to change banks!
Too high fees, too frequent change of advisor, inability to meet your account manager, uncompetitive real estate rate ... there are plenty of reasons to change bank. But it is not yet that simple ... According to the consumer association UFC - What to choose, 40% of customers who wanted to change bank encountered problems during this transfer. 20% even had to suffer from delays in the payments of direct debits and transfers. Which of course generated bank charges! More seriously, 31% of customers who wanted to change bank abandoned the transfer because they found it too long and too complex. It must be said that even if your bank considers you as a small customer, and does not grant you any advantage, it still sees in you a source of income through the bank charges that you pay it! To change bank, choose an online bank, which has less costs, and which generally takes care of everything ... It will be faster and above all less expensive!

8/3/2012 - Loans to individuals ... down
Consumer loans, whatever the project, attract the French less and less. The production of new loans in January 2011 returned to the level of 2000 ... According to the Association of Financial Companies (ASF), in January 2012, personal loans and revolving loans fell overall by 7.4% compared to January 2011. In detail ... It is especially credits for new cars that have fallen the most, the drop is 14.5%. This figure includes conventional credit financing and Rentals with Purchase Option. This figure is easily explained because sales of new cars are currently in the red. Personal loans are down 9.5% from last year. This is an extremely sharp drop, never seen since December 2009 ... Revolving credit (the famous revolving accounts) are down 8.2% compared to January 2011. But cumulatively over the last 12 months, the decline reached 24%. Appropriations for household equipment such as household appliances, multimedia equipment and furniture did not decline, but a small increase of 1.5% ...
