1 NATIONAL RESERVE BANK OF TONGA Prudential Statement No. 4 Revised 2014 DISCLOSURES OF INTEREST RATES AND FEES AND CHARGES BY LICENCED FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS 1. INTRODUCTION 1.1 This Statement is issued under Section 15(3) of the Financial Institutions Act, One of the functions of the Reserve Bank is to promote sound financial structure. As part of its response to this function the Reserve Bank requires a licensed financial institution (LFI) to publicly disclose the interest rates and fees and charges relating to its products and services. This enables the general public to compare interest rates and fees and charges between various services/products and providers. This in turn fosters market discipline and competitiveness. 1.3 The lack of understanding and awareness by the members of the public about the financial services and products of LFIs they use/purchase is contributing to increasing concerns on interest rates and fees and charges. 1.4 This Statement sets out the Reserve Bank s requirements with regard to the form and content of the disclosure of interest rates and fees and charges for LFIs in Tonga. 2. INTEREST RATES Disclosure of Interest Rates 2.1 A LFI shall display in a conspicuous manner in each of its offices and branches in Tonga the interest rates offered for deposits and charged on loan products. 2.2 The method of disclosure undertaken by a LFI for interest rates is entirely at its discretion. The interest rates shall be publicly displayed in a conspicuous manner in each office, branch and agency of the bank in Tonga through brochures, leaflets, booklets, or electronic or static displays placed in a conspicuous place in the office, branch or agency. It is a contravention of this Policy to not make available this information. 2.3 In response to enquiries about LFI services or products, LFI personnel must inform the potential customer about applicable interest rates and related requirements/conditions.
2 2.4 Before a customer is committed to a particular deposit or loan product, LFI personnel must provide clear and simple written disclosure of the effective interest rate and amount (or effective cost of credit) 1 as illustrated in Appendix D, the current interest rate for the deposit or loan, the manner in which interest is calculated, the circumstances under which the interest rate will vary, and penalties and forfeitures, if any. In the case of fixed maturity loan products an LFI must also provide written advice of the amount of interest which will be payable if the loan is repaid according to contractual terms and conditions. All LFIs must be able to demonstrate that effective disclosure has taken place by maintaining in file a copy of the calculation of Effective Interest Rate and the disclosure signed and dated by borrowers before they are committed to a loan contract. A copy should be given to the customer and the original produced for review and verification by the staff of the Reserve Bank as required. Effective Date 2.5 Where a LFI is proposing to increase or decrease interest rates for loan products it shall ensure that existing customers are made aware of the revised rates at least thirty (30) calendar days before the effective date by: (1) posting in each office, branch and agency of the LFI in Tonga, a notice detailing the proposed change in interest rates in a conspicuous place and at all teller stations or other places in the office, branch or agency where funds are normally received or paid out by the LFI; (2) broadcasting over the radio and/or publishing in a local newspaper in general circulation in Tonga for four (4) weeks a notice detailing the proposed increase or decrease in interest rates on loan and deposit products. 2.6 A LFI should also give notice of interest rate decreases or increases for deposit products at least thirty (30) calendar days before the effective date in the same manner as outlined in 2.5 above. This is because a decrease or increase for one type of product may make it relatively more or less attractive than was previously the case. 2.7 A LFI must notify the Reserve Bank in writing of the variation in interest rates on loan and deposit products at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to effective date of the decrease or increase in interest rates on loan and deposit products. 3. FEES AND CHARGES Disclosure of Fees and Charges 3.1 A LFI shall fully disclose all fees and charges on all the services and products it offers to members of the public. Fees and charges can be disclosed in brochures, leaflets, 1 Effective interest rate is the rate that represents the actual annual cost of credit over the term of a loan. This includes any fees or additional costs associated with a loan. It provides borrowers with a bottom-line number they can easily compare to rates charged by other potential lenders. A soft copy of the Effective Interest Rate Calculator, in Microsoft Excel format, has been circulated to all LFIs.
3 pamphlets or booklets placed in a conspicuous position in each of its offices and branches in Tonga. 3.2 The method of disclosure undertaken by a LFI for fees and charges is entirely at its discretion but the format used must conform to the disclosure standard of the Reserve Bank as outlined in this Prudential Statement. 3.3 All disclosure brochures, leaflets, booklets, or electronic or static displays must be made available to members of the public at all times. The brochures, leaflets, booklets, or electronic or static displays must be clearly displayed in a manner noticeable to all customers at each location of the bank s operation and the bank s website. It is a contravention of this Policy to not make available this information. 3.4 In response to enquiries about LFI services or products, LFI personnel must provide a copy of the fees and charges disclosure information. Customers should be encouraged to study the fees and charges disclosure before proceeding. Format for disclosure of Fees and Charges 3.5 A LFI s fees and charges shall be grouped for disclosure purposes under three main business headings - customer banking services, lending and international in the formats set out in Appendix A, B and C. The generic names in the Reserve Bank s formats must be retained but a LFI may insert in brackets the specific names of accounts/products it uses. Where a LFI offers additional products or services it should clearly itemise these products and services under the appropriate sub-headings. 3.6 If a LFI does not have a fee or charge for a particular service or product, that should be noted in the fees and charges brochure for the benefit of customers. For example, a LFI should specifically state the number of free withdrawals and charges associated with any additional withdrawals on passbooks accounts and electronic debit cards. 3.7 If a LFI does not offer a particular service or product that is specified in the subheading of the disclosure format prepared by the Reserve Bank, the LFI should disclose this in the fees and charges brochure as Not Applicable (N/A).
