The case is updated.

Central bank governor Ida Wolden Bache struck on Thursday with the third rate hike of 0.5 percentage points in a row. This means that the key interest rate is now at 2.25 per cent, the highest level in more than ten years.

The key interest rate is the interest rate on the banks’ deposits with Norges Bank, and when the central bank sets the interest rate, the banks often follow suit with increased lending and deposit rates.

KLP Banken is the first bank to raise interest rates. Interest rates on mortgages are raised by up to 0.5 percentage points, while interest rates on deposits are raised by up to 0.6 percentage points.

– The fact that Norges Bank raised the policy rate this week for the fourth time this year affects the market rate at which the banks borrow money. This means that we have to increase the interest rate on mortgages and deposits, says Jorunn Ygre Storjohann, who is director of personal markets at KLP Banken.

The new interest rates apply from 8 November for existing customers.

On Thursday, the central bank also presented a new interest rate path, which illustrates Norges Bank’s forecast for the key interest rate going forward, if the economy develops in line with expectations. In the interest rate path, further interest rate increases of 0.25 percentage points are signaled in both November and December, so that the key interest rate is 2.75 per cent at the end of the year.(Terms)Copyright Dagens Næringsliv AS and/or our suppliers.
