Ooba welcomes Reserve Bank interest rate cut

ooba, South Africa’s biggest bond originator, welcomes the interest rate cut of 0.25% announced by the South African Reserve Bank this afternoon.

Our Firstrand expectation is for a 25 basis point interest rate cut in the SARB’s Repo Rate, when its Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting concludes on Wednesday. Should this happen, it would lower the Repo Rate to 6.5%, and the Prime Lending Rate of banks to 10%.
