London Inter-Bank Offered Rate, or LIBOR as it is commonly known, represents an average lending rate between banks in London. It is based on the rates of the highest-rated banks in the city and is used frequently as a benchmark for short-term interest rates around the world. The rate is published daily by the British Bankers’ Association (BBA) and available to those licensed by the BBA. When the rates are two months old, the BBA will post them on their website where the public is free to view and download them, for personal use.
