Discretionary Rate

« Back to Glossary Index

A discretionary rate is a preferred rate that a bank or credit union is willing to offer certain well-qualified clients, but that it does not advertise publicly. A client’s ability to obtain discretionary discounts is based on a variety of factors, including their history with that institution, their negotiating ability, their credit worthiness, etc.
