Cost Of Funds Index


Definition of "Cost of funds index"

Average of what savings institutions in the 11th district of the Federal Home Loan Bank System ( California, Arizona, and Nevada) are paying in interest to depositors and other sources of borrowed money. The index was developed in 1981 to provide a benchmark for adjustable rate mortgages. Currently, about 10 percent of the nation's mortgages are tied to the index. When the index rides, so do interest rates on millions of home mortgages.
