Based entirely on actual unsecured lending transactions on the AFX Marketplace, AMERIBOR offers a transparent, credit-sensitive rate reflective of current market conditions. AMERIBOR’s basis in unsecured lending and borrowing enables optimal loan origination, asset-liability management and more.
AMERIBOR serves as the financial benchmark from which a wide range of products can be created. Our partnership with Cboe enables risk management through the execution of listed futures contracts.
The American economy is based on choice. Each one of our nation’s financial institutions must account for its own unique local conditions and banking dynamics. The need for a credit-sensitive financial benchmark that reflects true overnight borrowing costs and responds to real market factors is critical for ongoing economic growth.
AFX believes that all lending institutions should be free to choose a financial benchmark that best reflects their funding needs and constituents. AMERIBOR provides that choice.
