Central Reserve Bank of Peru

November 8, 2019

The Central Reserve Bank of Peru late yesterday announced a 25-basis point reduction of its reference interest rate to 2.25%. This follows a similar cut in August. There were also two 25-basis point cuts in the first quarter of 2018 and three such cuts in the second half of 2017. A released statement observes weakness in the economies primary industries and projects CPI inflation hovering near 2.0% but with a downside bias. The statement also indicates that today’s rate doesn’t necessarily herald further easing.
