English term or phrase: track at
commercial loans from a bank are typically track at or near the prime rate
Siglinde
sich orientieren
Explanation:
I think the English sentence is incorrect or incomplete, and should probably read: "Commercial loans from a bank typically track, or are near the prime rate." => "Der Zinssatz für Bankkredite orientiert sich meist an der 'Prime Rate' bzw. liegt nahe daran."

[Depending on which 'prime rate' is used in this context, you might use 'Leitzins' instead - but only if the rate is set by an official body, typically a central bank.]
