Nibor (Norwegian Interbank Offered Rate) is a collective term for Norwegian money market rates at different maturities. Nibor is intended to reflect the interest rate level a bank require for unsecured money market lending in NOK to another bank. Norske Finansielle Referanser (NoRe) is (from January, 2017) administrator for Nibor. Nibor is calculated and published by Oslo Børs.
The interest rate on Norges Bank’s overnight loans (D-loans) to private banks (the banks’ borrowing facility), and the interest rate on banks’ sight deposits in Norges Bank. NIBOR is based on the euro-krone market (the swap market); the following maturities exist: tomorrow/next, 1 week, 2 weeks, 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months; yields on Norwegian Treasury bills with a residual maturity of 3, 6, 9 and 12 months; yields on Norwegian government bonds with residual maturities of 3, 5 years, and 10 years; and financial institutions’ average interest rates.
