Interest rate

The amount charged by the creditor and paid by the borrower for a loan. It is usually expressed as a percentage of the amount borrowed.


In Switzerland, the Swiss National Bank sets the interest rates that are used as a basis for the entire banking system. Over the past century, official interest rates have fluctuated between -0.75% and 7.0%.
