What is the Euro Interbank Offered Rate (EURIBOR)?
How Does the Euro Interbank Offered Rate (EURIBOR) Work?
EURIBOR is sponsored by the European Banking Federation which represents some 5,000 banks and by the Financial Markets Association.
With the introduction of the Euro in 1999, European banks realized the need for a new interbank reference rate within the European Union. To answer this need, the EURIBOR was adopted as the benchmark rate for the large Euro money market.
EURIBOR is also the underlying rate for many derivatives, both over-the-counter and exchange-traded.
Why Does the Euro Interbank Offered Rate (EURIBOR) Matter?
EURIBOR supplies the foundation for some of the world's most liquid and active interest rate markets. This has become the benchmark for short term interest rates within the EU and their respective partner banks.
