    3. If the "calculation date of reference stock price index" corresponds to a public holiday in Tokyo, the following business day will be the first date of interest calculation period. If this following business day falls within the next month, the first date of interest calculation period will be on the business day 1 day prior to this corresponding day. The same applies to the following.

  • From 2nd interest calculation period onward
  • The interest calculation period is from the following day of the previous interest calculation period to the prior day of 1 year after the "calculation date of reference stock price index"3.


    <Interest calculation method>
    If the "stock price index" on the "interest calculation date", (day that is five days prior to the first day of each interest calculation period) is equal to, or above the "reference stock price index"4, the interest rate applied in the previous interest calculation period, plus a certain rate set by the Bank, will apply for the following interest calculation period.

    On the other hand, if the "stock price index" on the "interest calculation date" is less than the "reference stock price index", the interest rate applied in the previous interest calculation period, minus a certain rate set by the Bank will apply for the following interest calculation period. The minimum interest rate is 0.30% p.a. (before tax).

    4. Reference stock price index is a stock price index on the "calculation date of reference stock price index".

    If there is no announcement of the "closing price of the Nikkei 225 index", the first price index announced afterwards would be used. In case no announcement is made until the interest calculation period, t the interest rate applied in the previous interest calculation period minus a certain rate set by the Bank will apply.
