Consequently, the Finnish Parliament introduced a cap on interest rates charged on unsecured credit (including credit cards) at 20% per annum in September 2019. While this move is likely to encourage consumer spending, and reduce their debt obligations, card issuers are likely to cut down on credit card reward benefits, with an increase to the annual or monthly fee to compensate for the income loss.
