    Bermuda banks must be required to MATCH! It is not fair to the public to allow banks to fund loans, particularly long-term mortgages, on a floating rate basis. This current inflation event will get much worse before it gets better. The government and the regulator are of little use to the public – get ready to pay much larger interest rates for years to come.

      Not fair? If you don’t like the terms being offered don’t borrow money from Clarien!

        Unfortunately its about the current homeowners that have 15-30 year terms that now will have to pay more monthly even if struggling pre/post Covid .
        Maybe they can transfer their mortgage but likely all the banks will be the same .
