Butterfield Bank Cuts Bermuda Dollar Base Rate by 0.75% to 4.25%

Butterfield Bank today announced it will reduce its Bermuda Dollar Base Rate by 0.75%, to 4.25%, with effect from Monday, 24 March 2008.

Customers with existing variable rate residential mortgages will see a 0.75% reduction in their interest
rates from Monday, 23 June 2008. This reduction follows an announcement in January of a 0.25% cut to variable rate residential mortgages which will take effect on Tuesday, 22 April 2008.

Richard Ferrett, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President said, “We are pleased to pass on the benefits of lower US interest rates to our customers who borrow from us at rates linked to the Bank’s Bermuda Dollar Base Rate.”

Customers with personal loans and mortgages at fixed rates of interest will be unaffected by the change.
