The Pricing Transparency Index is MFTransparency’s scale for rating the level of transparency of a price. The Index can be applied at a range of levels – country, institution, product and loan. The Index shows the percentage of the loan price that is communicated by the lender’s nominal interest rate to the borrower.

The higher the Pricing Transparency Index rating = the more transparent the price, with a perfect score being 100.
