1 CBFR – Converse Bank Floating Rate: is set by the Bank twice a year based on the key rates, and unless the latter are available, based on the secondary rates. Upon change, the nominal interest rate of current agreements is revised no sooner than 1 month after notifying the borrower thereon.
Key rates: for AMD – the yield curve of the RA 180-day discount bonds that is published by the Central Bank of Armenia at https://www.cba.am; for USD or EUR – the “USD 6-month ICE LIBOR” and EUR 6-month ICE LIBOR” benchmarks accordingly that are published by Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) at https://www.theice.com.
Secondary rates: for AMD – the refinance rate set by the CBA; for USD – the federal funds rate set by the US Federal Reserve Bank or the upper limit of the range; and for EUR – the Marginal lending facility rate set by the European Central Bank.
Furthermore, upon the inaccessibility of key rates and the application of secondary rates, the nominal CBFR financing rates are set based on the secondary rates so that the nominal interest rate remains unchanged upon the change of the fixed component of the financing rate.
The CBFR is published on the official site of the Bank https://conversebank.am/hy/kbht/ and are available at the Bank.
The CBFR values can be rounded to the nearest hundredth.
The Bank can change the floating rate of this loan no more than twice a year.
