NoRe and Nibor

Norske Finansielle Referanser AS (NoRe) is established and owned by Finance Norway with the purpose to administer financial benchmarks. NoRe has approval from the Norwegian Ministry of Finance to act as administrator for the Norwegian Interbank Offered Rate (Nibor).

Nibor 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. Nibor is calculated and published by Oslo Børs with maturities of one week, one month, two months, three months and six months.

The Nibor framework consists of the Nibor Rules supplemented with guidelines. The rules describe what the interest rates represents, the requirements laid on the suppliers of data (the panel banks) and how the rates are to be calculated and published.
