What is LIBOR?

LIBOR stands for London InterBank Offered Rate. Originally, LIBOR was an indicative average interest rate at which a selection of banks were prepared to lend one another unsecured funds on the London money market. In the past there were 150 LIBOR interest rates: 10 different currencies and 15 maturities per currency. Nowadays there are only a few LIBOR rates left that are generated in a synthetic way. Alternative benchmark interest rates have been introduced for most maturities and currencies.

The official LIBOR interest rates are announced once a day by ICE Benchmark Administration (IBA). The rates may only be published by partners of the IBA like Global-rates.com. This website shows the current LIBOR interest rates with a delay.

The creation of LIBOR

At the start of the nineteen eighties there was a growing need amongst the financial institutions in London for a benchmark for lending rates. This benchmark was particularly needed in order to calculate prices for financial products such as interest swaps and options. Under the leadership of the British Bankers' Association (BBA) a number of steps were taken from 1984 onwards which led in 1986 to the publication of the first LIBOR interest rates (bbalibor).

LIBOR currencies

Originally (in 1986) LIBOR was published for 3 currencies: the US dollar, the pound sterling and the Japanese yen. Over the years that followed the number of LIBOR currencies grew to a maximum of 16. A number of these currencies merged into the euro in 2000.

Over the years, we have published the following LIBOR rates on Global-rates.com:

The end of LIBOR

LIBOR has existed for a long time. But over time, LIBOR has been burdened by scandals and crises. As a result, a lack of confidence in LIBOR rates arose which has led to the decision to phase out LIBOR. Publication of most LIBOR settings has now ended.

Alternatives for LIBOR

Because there is of course still a need for benchmark interest rates, alternatives to the LIBOR interest rates have been introduced. For example SOFR (US Dollar), TONAR (Japanese yen), SONIA (British pound sterling), SARON (Swiss franc) and ESTER (Euro).
