- The result showed that the premium paid by Primary Mortgage Banks (PMBs), MFBs, DMBs to the corporation reduced in 2014.
- “The observed reduction in the maximum, minimum and mean rates paid by banks in 2014 was attributable to the reduction in base rate to 40 basis points, which was aimed at reducing the premium burden on banks as well as the improvement in the risk profile of banks,” the corporation claimed”
- The NDIC said it used 40 basis points as the premium base rate before the add-ons in calculating the premium for DMBs/NIBs under the Differential Premium Assessment System (DPAS) and a flat rate of 50 basis points to compute the premium payable by PMBs and MFBs in 2014.
