No. The prime rate is a benchmark rate used by institutions for pricing business and other credit. Banks set their own rates based on the demand for various kinds of loans, on the cost of money to the banks, and on the administrative costs of making loans. Each bank in accord with other rates arbitrarily sets the Prime Rate.
