Global Interest Rates as on 31st May 2013

Global Interest Rate Monitor (GIRM) that covers the official Monetary Policy Rates of the
world's Central Bank Monetary Authorities.

The table below is updated as soon as policy rates change. The first row of the table shows
the Global Monetary Policy Rate (GMPR): The average nominal rate of the 90 central banks
covered by Central Bank News. This is followed by the global year-to-date net change in basis
points, and the total net change in 2012 and 2011.

The RATE column shows the current policy rate of each central bank, the CHANGE column
shows the latest rate change, the DATE column shows the date of the last rate change and the
YTD column shows the net change in interest rates in basis points, year-to-date. The 2012 and
2011 columns show the total net change in rates for that year, in basis points, for each central
bank.
