In New Zealand, interest rates decisions are taken by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. The official interest rate is the Official Cash Rate (OCR). The OCR was introduced in March 1999 and is reviewed eight times a year by the Bank. The OCR influences the price of borrowing money in New Zealand and provides the Reserve Bank with a means of influencing the level of economic activity and inflation.

Latest Updates

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand lowered its official cash rate by 50bps to a fresh record low of 1 percent at its August 2019 meeting, while markets had forecast a smaller 25bps cut. This was the first rate cut since May, aiming to support inflation amid weakening global economic activity and ongoing trade tensions. Policymakers signaled further rate cuts could be possible.
