Base interest rate of Societe Generale Expressbank - applicable value and calculation methodology
Base interest rate of Societe Generale Expressbank (BIRSGEB) is an index designed to represent the cost of the banks’ resources, needed to finance loans and other receivables to which that rate applies.
The cost of the banks’ resources enlists the following two elements:
- The average cost of the attracted funds from individuals, companies and other non-banking institutions, with regulatory and overhead costs embedded in the value; (S)
- The alternative cost for attracting funds from the interbank market. (R)
