BSBY – Bloomberg Short-Term Bank Yield Index
LIBOR Series (Part 2) – BSBY
As of 2022 most LIBORs are not being published anymore. This holds for EUR-, GBP-, CHF- and JPY-LIBORs as well as the 1-week- and the 2-month-USD-LIBORs. Remaining USD LIBOR tenors will retire by June 2023. Lots of contracts are now linked to so called risk-free rates which still suffer from disadvantages in comparison to their predecessors. In order to solve multiple requests for a credit-sensitive rate with term structures some new reference rates have been created. One of these new rates is the Bloomberg Short-Term Bank Yield Index summarized in the fact sheet below.
