More banks have come forward to say that they will not be charging compounding interest on their loans during the six-month moratorium period: Hong Leong Bank, Public Bank, Affin Bank, CIMB, Agrobank, and BSN.

Hong Leong Bank

Non-compounding interest applies to all SME loans/financing and loans/financing to individuals, including auto, housing, mortgages, personal loans/financing and Amanah Saham Bumiputra (ASB) financing, Pension financing and MyCoop loans/financing.

Public Bank

As per usual, compounding interest does not apply to Islamic financial products for all banks in compliance with Shariah law.

Other banks who have said that they will not be compounding interest during the moratorium include HSBC, OCBC, RHB, Maybank, and Alliance Bank, all of which made their announcements over the past week.
