The People's Bank of China held steady its key rates for corporate and household loans at June fixing, as the economy starts to gradually recover from COVID-19 lockdowns. The one-year loan prime rate (LPR) was left unchanged at 3.7%; while the five-year rate, a reference for mortgages, was also maintained at 4.45%, following a record 15-basis point cut in May. The State Council, China’s cabinet, last week said that the country "won’t print an excessive amount of money or overdraw the future,” indicating caution against monetary stimulus that major developed nations took in response to the pandemic. Meantime, borrowing demand by households and companies still remains weak due to the pandemic-induced slump and a months-long property downturn. While credit picked up in May, it was largely attributed to a jump in government bond sales and a rise in short-term lending, according to Bloomberg News. source: People's Bank of China

China Loan Prime Rate
The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) on August 17th, 2019, designated the Loan Prime Rate (LPR) the new lending benchmark for new bank loans to households and businesses, replacing the central bank’s benchmark one-year lending rate. The rate is based on a weighted average of lending rates from 18 commercial banks, which will submit their LPR quotations, based on what they have bid for PBOC liquidity in open market operations, to the national interbank funding center before 9am CST on the 20th of every month.

China Holds Steady LPR Rate

China Holds 1-Year LPR, Cuts Mortgage Reference Rate
The People's Bank of China held steady its key rates for corporate and household loans at May fixing, but slashed the mortgage reference rate for the second time this year, amid a slowdown in the Chinese economy due to worst COVID-19 outbreak in more than two years, a property crisis, and weak loan demand. The one-year LPR was kept unchanged at 3.7% after cuts of 5 and 10 bps in December and January, while the five-year LPR was trimmed by 15 bps, the most since a revamp of the rate in 2019, to 4.45%. Recently, Chinese financial authorities allowed commercial banks to reduce the lower limit of interest rates on home loans by 20 bps, based on the corresponding tenor of benchmark LPRs for buying of first homes. The loan guidance came after the central bank data showing new bank loans in China plunged to their lowest in more than four years in April. During the first quarter, banks in many cities in China have cut mortgage rates after calls from authorities to support buyer sentiment.

China Holds Loan Prime Rate Unchanged
The People's Bank of China kept its benchmark interest rates unchanged for corporate and household loans at its April fixing although some investors were betting on a rate cut. The one-year loan prime rate (LPR) was left unchanged at 3.7% following cuts of 5 and 10 bps in December and January, respectively. The five-year rate was kept at 4.6% after a 5-basis-point cut in January. The PBoC last week cut its benchmark reserve requirement ratio for all banks by 25 bps, in an effort to boost the long-term funds for banks; and kept borrowing costs of its medium-term lending facility (MLF) steady for the third straight month. The central bank also urged financial institutions to step up support for the contact-intensive service sector and small firms impacted by COVID-19, it said in a statement Wednesday. Meantime, Premier Li Keqiang recently urged all localities to remain confident while being highly vigilant about unprecedented challenges and rising downward pressure.
