A Tiering Rule to Balance the Impact of Negative Policy Rates on Banks

Jean-Guillaume Sahuc, Mattia Girotti and Benoît Nguyen

No 2022-4, EconomiX Working Papers from University of Paris Nanterre, EconomiX

Abstract: Negative interest rate policy makes excess liquidity costly to hold for banks and this may weaken the bank-based transmission of monetary policy. We design a rule-based tiering system for excess reserve remuneration that reduces the burden of negative rates on banks while ensuring that the central bank keeps control of interbank interest rates. Using euro-area data, we show that under the proposed tiering system, the aggregate cost of holding excess liquidity when the COVID-19 monetary stimulus fully unfolds would be more than 36% lower than that under the ECB’s current system.
