London Interbank Offered Rate


London Interbank Offered Rate
The London Interbank Offered Rate, that is, the interest rates at which banks borrow funds, in marketable size, in the London Interbank Market.
USA
LIBOR (or the London Interbank Offered Rate) is a daily reference rate based on the interest rates at which banks borrow short-term funds from banks in the London Interbank Market. There are many different LIBOR rates, depending on duration and currency (for example, one-month, three-month and six-month pound sterling LIBOR, Euro LIBOR, US dollar LIBOR, Japanese yen LIBOR). LIBOR is affected by several factors such as liquidity in the London cash markets, the banks that comprise the contributor panels (which aim to reflect the balance of the market by reporting the average of selected interbank offer rates) and local interest rate policy. LIBOR rates are published daily by Reuters, as well as certain other financial-services publishers.
