Old Mutual Implied Rate (OMIR) – Zimbabwe Dollar Implied Exchange Rate

(Indicative Only)

What is the ‘Old Mutual Implied Rate’?

Zimbabwe’s RTGS dollar officially floats against other international currencies on the Interbank Foreign Exchange Market, on a willing seller-willing-buyer basis. However, a significant amount of transactions happen outside the official market, at an unofficial exchange rate. One of the few gauges of the Zimbabwe exchange rate is the so-called ‘Old Mutual Implied Rate’, a comparison of the price of shares of insurer Old Mutual Limited in London and Harare.
