Index interest rates for FLIR loans
UIRD (Ukrainian Index of Retail Deposit Rates) is a benchmark rate calculated by Thomson Reuters* every banking day at 15:00 Kyiv time. The calculation is based on nominal interest rates for 12 months in Ukrainian hryvnia denominated retail deposits with interest paid at maturity, which are in effect at the 20 largest Ukrainian banks in terms of retail deposit portfolios. These banks are listed based on their retail deposit portfolios, details of which are published quarterly on the website of the National Bank of Ukraine. A comprehensive list of banks participating in the UIRD is available on the website of the National Bank of Ukraine.
LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate) is the average rate of interest on interbank deposits accepted by banks in the London interbank market. The largest global banks in the London money market are prepared to accept deposits from other major banks at this rate. LIBOR is fixed by the British Bankers’ Association. In Ukraine, LIBOR is used to calculate loans denominated in US dollars. LIBOR is computed by Thomson Reuters*.
EURIBOR (Euro Interbank Offered Rate) is the global benchmark price for euro-denominated funds, which is calculated based on the interest rates for interbank deposits. This is the rate at which euro interbank term deposits are being offered within the EMU zone by one prime bank to another. In Ukraine EURIBOR is used for the calculation of euro-denominated loans. EURIBOR is computed by Thomson Reuters*.
* Thomson Reuters has been calculating and publishing LIBOR fixings since 1986. Today, Thomson Reuters calculates and/or publishes more than 250 fixings including EONIA, EURIBOR, MOWIBOR, KIEVPRIME, MOSPRIME, EMTA UAH FIX, etc.
