  1. Looks more of a misleading news, as in fact they have only 3 types of loans (out of ~30 total types) that depend on this rate, and those are anyway very expensive, so cutting 2-3 percent doesn’t hurt.

    CATALOGUE OF INTEREST RATES AND CHARGES FOR INDIVIDUALS

    from their website you can read: “Interest rates have been calculated using the Bank Base Rate (B.B.R.) of 5.75% or Consumer Loan Base Rate (C.L.B.R.) of 6.25%, depending, for consumer loans and other credit facilities for individuals. For mortgages, Housing Loan Base Rate (H.L.B.R.) of 3.50% and Euribor 3m (three months) of 0.7270% dated 25/04/2012 have been used.”

    Please keep in mind that they also add a band margin to the base rates, so the actual APR payed is usually 50-100% more than the base rate

  2. How an earth can they afford to cut rates so far when, surely, they have to all they can to squeeze more out of loan payers? Maybe there are some tactics at work here!

  3. Costas – As they do not seem to be paying anyway I do not think they will be too bothered.
