The Monetary Board on 19 May 2022 decided to raise the interest rates on Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas’ (BSP): (1) overnight reverse repurchase facility by 25 basis points to 2.25 percent; and (2) overnight deposit and lending facilities to 1.75 percent and 2.75 percent, respectively.

Accordingly, the rediscount rate for loans under the Peso Rediscount Facility has been set at 2.75 percent, regardless of loan maturity (i.e., 1 to 180 days) effective 23 May 2022. This is in line with the temporary reduction of the term spread on Peso rediscounting loans relative to BSP’s overnight lending rate to zero, until 30 June 2022.
