BUDAPEST, July 4 Hungary's central bank said
compensating borrowers for unfair loan practices could cost the
country's financial sector 600 to 900 billion forints
($2.63-$3.94 billion), based on a bill which parliament is
expected to pass later on Friday.
However, this will not pose a risk to the stability of the
bank sector, the central bank's press office said in a reply to
"The National Bank of Hungary believes this amount will not
cause a problem in terms of the stability of the banking system,
none of the banks will need significant additional capital
injection, but it could reshuffle the market position of some
banks in the longer term," the bank said.
