A 25-Basis Point Interest Rate Cut in Peru

September 15, 2017

Authorities at the Central Reserve Bank of Peru implemented the third 25-basis point cut of 2017 following moves in May and July. A released statement justifies this third cut, even in the face of higher inflation in August than July, by projecting a decline in trend inflation over coming months and noting both lower expected inflation and continuing sub-potential economic growth. Consumer price inflation last month was 2.57% when excluding food and energy, and that’s within the target of 1-3%.
