Floating rate business loans
Business loans with a floating interest rate can be issued in GEL or USD.
Compared to standard business loans, floating rate loans have the following advantages:
- Long-term loan in the national currency with a maturity of up to 10 years.
- Lower interest rate compared to fixed rate loans, both in GEL and USD.
- Interest rates are adjusted according to market trends.
Floating rate loans in GEL are tied to the refinancing rate of the National Bank of Georgia (see www.nbg.gov.ge).
For instance, if the refinancing rate is 4%, the interest rate of the floating rate loans will be 11%. If the refinancing rate falls to 3%, the interest rate will change in direct proportion to the refinancing rate and become 10%.
Floating rate loans in USD are tied to the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) published by the British Banking Association. This interest rate is established for three-month deposits in USD (for details, please see : www.bloomberg.com/quote/US0003M:IND).
Floating rate loans are granted:
for any business purposes (fixed assets, working capital, real estate)
for certain personal purposes (home improvement, purchase/renovation/construction of real estate).
