[Infostock Daily= Reporter Lee Kang-wook] Corporate loans rose to a record high last month due to the spread of new coronavirus infections (Corona 19 or COVID-19).
According to the Bank of Korea's March financial market trend, bank corporate loans rose by 18.7 trillion won last month, the largest increase since the start of the 2009 survey.
As the demand for securing funds in advance increased in the aftermath of Corona 19, large-scale loans increased to 10.7 trillion won, and loans from SMEs and individual businesses also increased.
Bank household loans also increased by more than the previous month, the largest increase ever, to 9.6 trillion won, the largest ever increase.
Among them, 'housing mortgage loan' continued to increase to 6.3 trillion won, and 'other loans' also increased by 3.3 trillion won, more than double the previous month due to demand for stock investment funds.
The 10-year Treasury bond yield rose 0.03 percentage points in the international financial market due to the dollar's move and the prospect of an increase in government bond supply.
