Libor

The London interbank offered rate (Libor) and is the rate of interest at which banks in London are willing to lend to other banks.

The Libor rate used as a benchmark is that calculated by the British Bankers Association (BBA). A number of banks report their rates to the BBA and a number based on these is released to the market daily.
