KUALA LUMPUR, July 17 (Bernama) -- Malaysia's largest Islamic bank, Bank Islam Malaysia Bhd, is revising its base financing rate (BFR) to 6.85 per cent per annum from 6.6 per cent per annum effective Friday.

Bank Islam in a statement today said the revision is in line with Bank Negara Malaysia's recent move to increase the overnight policy rate (OPR) by 25 basis points to 3.25 per cent.

The last revision in Bank Islam's BFR was on May 16, 2011, when the rate was revised from 6.3 per cent to 6.6 per cent.
