Interest rate set for “Bareketsik apaga” deposit at that point

1 CBFR – Converse Bank CJSC Floating Rate. Is established by the Bank twice a year based on the primary rates, and unless the latter are accessible, based on the secondary rates. Once changed, the simple interest of the agreements is changed no sooner than in a months after notifying the depositor thereon. Primary rates: for AMD – the yield curve of 180-day discount rate government bonds, published by the Central Bank of Armenia on https://www.cba.am; for USD and EUR – "USD 6-month ICE LIBOR" and "EUR 6-month ICE LIBOR" benchmarks accordingly, published by Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) on https://www.theice.com. Secondary rates: for AMD – the CBA set refinancing rate; for USD – Federal Funds rate or the target range - Upper Limit set by the US Federal Reserve Bank; for EUR – the Marginal Lending Facility Rate set by the European Central Bank. Upon inaccessibility to primary rates and application of secondary rates, the secondary rate-based simple interest rate at CBFR is established for deposits so that the amount of the simple interest rate remains unchanged upon the change of the fixed component of the deposit interest rate. The established CBFR rates are published on the Bank’s official site https://conversebank.am/hy/kbht/ and are made available at the Bank. The Bank can revise the floating interest rate of this deposit no more than twice a year. The upper limit of rise or fall of the floating rate is set at +/- 4 percentage points. The CBFR amount can be rounded up to one hundredth.

Daily interest rate after the 1st adding
110,000 (deposit balance) x 11.75/100 (annual interest rate) / 365 (number of days in a year) = 35.41
Daily interest rate after the 2nd adding
120,000 (deposit balance) x 11.75/100 (annual interest rate) / 365 (number of days in a year) = 38.63
