    Fed Approves Cut to Its Lending Rate to Financial Institutions to 3.25 Percent

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Federal Reserve has approved the financing arrangement announced by JPMorgan Chase & Co. to acquire Bear Stearns Cos. It also has approved a cut to its lending rate to financial institutions to 3.25 percent from 3.50 percent and created another lending facility for big investment banks to secure short-term loans.
    The cut to its lending rate and the new loan facility announced Sunday are the central bank's latest steps to prevent a spreading financial crisis from plunging the country into its first recession since 2001, if it hasn't toppled into one already.

    The new lending facility will be available to financial institutions on Monday. It will be in place for at least six months and "may be extended as conditions warrant," the Fed said.

    Release Date: March 16, 2008

    For immediate release

    The Federal Reserve on Sunday announced two initiatives designed to bolster market liquidity and promote orderly market functioning. Liquid, well-functioning markets are essential for the promotion of economic growth.

    First, the Federal Reserve Board voted unanimously to authorize the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to create a lending facility to improve the ability of primary dealers to provide financing to participants in securitization markets. This facility will be available for business on Monday, March 17. It will be in place for at least six months and may be extended as conditions warrant. Credit extended to primary dealers under this facility may be collateralized by a broad range of investment-grade debt securities. The interest rate charged on such credit will be the same as the primary credit rate, or discount rate, at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

    Second, the Federal Reserve Board unanimously approved a request by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to decrease the primary credit rate from 3-1/2 percent to 3-1/4 percent, effective immediately. This step lowers the spread of the primary credit rate over the Federal Open Market Committee’s target federal funds rate to 1/4 percentage point. The Board also approved an increase in the maximum maturity of primary credit loans to 90 days from 30 days.

    The Board also approved the financing arrangement announced by JPMorgan Chase & Co. and The Bear Stearns Companies Inc.
