Jyske Bank launchs world’s first negative interest rate mortgage

Denmark’s third largest, Jyske Bank has launched the world’s first negative interest rate mortgage and started to offer a10-year mortgage deals at a negative interest rate of 0.5% a year. Under its negative mortgage, borrowers will pay the usual EMI but the outstanding amount will be slashed each month by more than the borrower has paid. The unconventional decision is the latest in a series of moves central and commercial banks in advanced economies have undertaken to revive demand and boost consumption.
