HKMA Followed US Fed’s Rate Hike
The Hong Kong Monetary Authority yesterday raised the base rate by 25 basis points to 1.5%, following the US Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike. Chief executive Norman Chan Tak-lam said the HKMA tends to follow the monetary policy set by the Fed since the Hong Kong dollar is pegged to the US greenback. He also warned local residents to remain vigilant and manage risks prudently in the property market due to a possible “upward cycle of mortgage interest rates.”
