As was announced yesterday, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) has decided to increase the overnight policy rate (OPR) for the second time this year, up another 25 basis points from 2.00% to 2.25%. With this, major banks across Malaysia are also moving to adjust their base rates (BR) and base lending rates (BLR) to reflect the change.

We’ve compiled the following list of banks that have announced their new BR and BLR so far, and will continue to update the list as more banks share their revisions.

Banks use the base rate (BR) as a reference rate to decide on the interest rates of your loans and savings. Prior to 2015, the base lending rate (BLR) was used as the benchmark instead. As there are still ongoing loans taken out before 2015 that refer to the BLR, banks are required to display both the BR and the BLR.

BNM’s decision to raise the OPR by another 25 basis points yesterday was attributed to the fact that Malaysia’s economic activity has continued to strengthen in recent months, following the first OPR hike since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, made two months ago in May 2022. As such, the central bank has decided to continue “adjusting the degree of monetary accommodation” to match the circumstance.
