The collateralised loans will be offered beginning on 2 September 2020. Until another decision is forthcoming, these special collateralised loans will be offered by auction once a month, on the first Wednesday of each month.

The loans will be granted at the Central Bank’s key interest rate, currently 1%, against collateral deemed eligible for Central Bank facilities at any given time.
