The comparisons are available online from September this year and visitors have the option to narrow the scope of search and comparison to only one type of Mutual Fund (high-risk, balanced, low-risk) and/or one type of region to invest. The very comparisons are based on four types of yields (since the start of the year, for the last 6 months, for the last 12 months and since the start of the initial public offering (IPO)), that enables classification and rearrangement  of the offers according to the certain criteria and personal specific needs of the investor.

Thursday, April 26, 2007 :: MOITE PARI Launches Detailed Catalogue for Business Loans Offers

Business entrepreneurs can find detailed information about potential financial sources for launching or growing a business in Bulgaria

About the service value

On 26 April 2007, MOITE PARI - the Bulgarian Financial Guide launched the first detailed online catalogue for business loan offers in Bulgaria.

It is made especially to assist entrepreneurs who have developed a business plan and seek to raise start-up capital or those who already run a business and need additional funding. However, the recent expansion in the number of financing alternatives can overwhelm and confuse many entrepreneurs.

Because of this reason MOITE PARI initiated a detailed online business loan catalogue that enables consumers to find all available market information about business loans. Also, every visitor can apply for a certain product directly from the site. The professional credit brokers from Creditland will consult applicants free of charge on personal financing issues and then fill correctly the required papers, and represent his/her application to the bank.

About the catalogue

The catalogue includes business loans offers that serve different needs - financing of working capital and investment needs or a combination of both. It is of equal use for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME), agricultural producers and free lance professionals. The catalogue provides detailed information about business loans for export financing and loans that are granted by energy efficiency programs and the program of the Guarantee Fund for Micro – Financing.

Thursday, February 05, 2007 :: Find the most favorable home loan with the assistance of the financial website MOITE PARI

The renovated version of www.moitepari.bg is provided with new product comparison as well as considerably improved functionality

About New Home Loans Comparison
MOITE PARI--the Bulgarian Financial Guide--has launched a full comparison of over 400 home loans offers. The Annual Percentage Rate (APR), calculated dynamically for each unique search, represents the loan’s complete cost, including the announced interest rate and all additional fees and insurance premiums (Life Insurance and Property Insurance). Home loans APR comparison, unlike that of other financial products, is not regulated by the Law of Consumer Loans that came into force in Bulgaria in June 2006. However, it is expected that soon the law will be altered to include home loans.

Since 2002, EU member states have practiced a “Voluntary Ethics Code.” Over 2,500 European banks and financial institutions have signed it. The Code obliges banks to publicly announce the APR on loans as well as several other conditions such as the type of interest rate, all possible fees, etc. A special Home Loans Directive based on a recent Green Paper on Mortgage Regulation is forthcoming with a White Book anticipated for 2007. These measures will be the last steps towards the Directive ratification in 2008.

Regardless of legislation MOITE PARI will provide a full APR comparison of home loans in order to empower consumers to make well-informed decisions about their personal finances.

About the new version of the website
The renovated version of www.moitepari.bg boasts considerably improved functionality that enables visitors to search for and easily find necessary information for financial products. The new version is organized to lead the consumer more quickly to his/her desired page on the website.

The following functions optimize the time that visitors spend in searching:
• All news and advices are classified by product subjects for easier navigation;
• A new option is added for choosing and comparing up to three offers. The information can be accessed and compared via dynamic and personalized searches;
• Consumers can now apply for a certain product from the “Search” screen
• A financial news section added to inform consumers about financial institutions current news. These will be published immediately after their official public announcement.
• The web site now has improved screen resolution that provides a considerably better visibility and the opportunity for showing more information on the screen at the same time.

“With the development of our newest product--comparison of home loans, we have made one more step towards closing the cycle of financial products comparisons. Also, we plan to direct our attention to some products outside of the financial sphere. Our final aim is to cover the majority of comparable services”- said Kamen Kanev- an executive director of MOITE PARI. “Our ambitions are to become the leading provider and analyzer of information about consumers’ personal finances throughout the South-Eastern region. The variety of financial products conditions on the one side, and consumers’ lack of time to study the different offers on the other – are the basis of the services we offer.”
