Abstract

The main objective of this paper is to explore the impact of monetary policy decisions on the lending rates of commercial banks in Morocco. For this purpose, A Vector Auto regressive (VAR) model is estimated in order to measure the impact of policy rate variations on the commercial lending rates, namely: treasury rate, consumer credit rate, equipment rate and mortgage rate. The main empirical finding is that variations in policy rate impacts the rates of commercial bank and the effect is more important on the short run than on the longer run rates.
