Daily quoted interest rates for different currencies
The Day-to-Day market rate is a standardised and neutral interest rate fixing for each individual currency. The rate is quoted daily at fixed times in the market for the currency in question. The reference rate with historical data can be obtained from Reuters or other information services.
The bank can also use another equivalent source to set the reference rate, as long as the source provides a published rate that is generally used in the market for the currency in question. For currencies where there is no official rate setting or well-developed market, the bank is obliged to set a reference rate itself.
We reserve the right for the interest rate calculation for the Day-to-Day market rate to be different for different products. Get in touch with an adviser at the bank if you have any questions about this.
Currencies and interest rate setting
Some smaller countries do not set their own rates. In these countries, DNB sets both the BID (offer rate) and ASK (demand rate).
Countries without rate setting
Many peripheral countries are closed to foreign banks or lack a developed interbank market, which means that they have not established a method for setting a national public fixed rate. Nevertheless, banks in some of these countries do publish interest rates, but these rates are not as reliable as a national fixed rate. For countries that do not set rates or price sources, DNB sets both the BID (offer rate) and ASK (demand rate).
