    Simple average interest rates

    To calculate the new interest rates, the Central Bank used the simple average of the monthly negotiated active interest rates for the previous 12 months (in this case, for the period January 2021 – December 2021).

    The interest rate for each month is the weighted average of the active interest rates for all credit operations carried out during the respective month. The weighting is based on the amount of the corresponding transaction.
