The BBA is the leading trade association for the UK banking and financial services sector, representing over 200 member banks from 60 countries on the full range of UK and international banking issues. BBA Libor is the primary benchmark for short term interest rates globally and is used as the basis for the settlement of interest rate contracts on many of the world’s major futures and options exchanges. It has also been used as a barometer to measure the health of financial money markets and is used in many loan agreements throughout global markets including mortgage agreements. Refinitiv sets BBA Libor on a daily basis and these rates are available for free on a two month delay for a six month period.
ICE Benchmark Administration Limited (IBA) was established in July 2013 following an announcement by the Hogg Tendering Advisory Committee, an independent committee set up by the UK government to select the new administrator for the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR).
