Base Rate is made up of 2 parts, our benchmark cost of funds (COF) and the Statutory Reserve Requirement (SRR) cost imposed by Bank Negara Malaysia. Our benchmark COF now reflects the cost of raising new funds in prevailing market funding conditions based on the 3-month KLIBOR as well as customer deposit rates.
