Euro Area MFI Interest Rate Statistics:July 2008

(lifePR) (Frankfurt am Main, ) In July 2008 almost all average MFI interest rates on new deposits and new loans in the euro area were higher than in the previous month.

MFI interest rates on new business: in July 2008 the weighted average rate on deposits from households with an agreed maturity of up to one year increased by 18 basis points to 4.61% while the corresponding deposit rate for non-financial corporations increased by 18 basis points to 4.46%. The weighted average rate on deposits from households redeemable at up to three months' notice increased by 6 basis points to 2.80%.

The interest rate on housing loans to households at a floating rate or with an initial rate fixation period of up to one year increased by 18 basis points to 5.66%. The corresponding rate on loans with an initial rate fixation period of more than five years and up to ten years increased by 13 basis points to 5.21%.

The weighted average rate on loans to households for consumption purposes, with an initial rate fixation period of over one and up to five years, increased by 21 basis points to 7.15% in July 2008.

In the case of loans to non-financial corporations at a floating rate or with an initial rate fixation period of up to one year, the weighted average rate increased in July by 10 basis points, to 6.26%, for loans up to EUR 1 million and increased by 9 basis points, to 5.44%, for loans above EUR 1 million. The weighted average rate on loans to non-financial corporations over EUR 1 million with an initial rate fixation period of more than five years remained basically unchanged at 5.51%.

MFI interest rates on outstanding amounts: in July 2008 the weighted average interest rate on outstanding amounts of deposits from households with an agreed maturity of up to two years increased by 11 basis points to 4.31%. The corresponding rate on deposits with an agreed maturity of over two years remained basically unchanged at 3.06%. The weighted average interest rate on outstanding amounts of deposits from non-financial corporations with an agreed maturity of up to two years increased by 11 basis points to 4.58% in the same month.

In July the weighted average interest rate on outstanding amounts of loans to households for house purchase with over five years' maturity increased by 4 basis points to 5.11% and the weighted average interest rate on outstanding amounts of loans to non-financial corporations with over five years'

maturity increased by 5 basis points to 5.44%.

Weighting method: the interest rates on new business are weighted by the size of the individual agreements. This is done both by the reporting agents and when computing the national and euro area averages. In addition to changes in the actual interest rates, changes in the euro area average interest rates on new business therefore reflect changes in the weights of the new business per country for the instrument categories concerned.

Notes
- In addition to the monthly euro area MFI interest rate statistics for July 2008, this press release incorporates minor revisions to the data for previous periods.
- "New business" refers to any new agreement between the customer and the MFI, while "outstanding amounts" refers to the stock of all deposits and all loans at a specific moment in time. Three instrument categories - overnight deposits, bank overdrafts and deposits redeemable at notice - form a separate group for which interest rates on new business and on outstanding amounts coincide.
- In this press release 'up to' means 'up to and including'.
- The period of initial rate fixation is any predetermined period of time at the start of a contract during which the interest rate cannot be changed.
- The corresponding business volumes for each of the MFI interest rate categories are shown in Tables 2 and 4 of the annex.
- More detailed information on MFI interest rate statistics, including the release calendar, is available under "MFI interest rate statistics" in the "Statistics" section of the ECB's website (http://www.ecb.europa.eu).
