Jakarta Interbank Offered Rate (JIBOR)
The availability of JIBOR data which is previously limited through Banks’ daily reporting system (Sistem LHBU), Thomson Reuters and Bloomberg will be expanded through Bank Indonesia website.
Jakarta Interbank Offered Rate (JIBOR) is an indicative rate used for money market transactions. This indicative rate refers to unsecured loan transaction in money market, which reflects interest rate that banks charge each other for taking and offering loans. This rate is then published and served as the benchmark for market transactions.
JIBOR consists of 2 currency which are local currency (IDR) and foreign currency (USD), of which consist of 6 tenures i.e. overnight, 1 week, 1 month, 3 month, 6 month and 12 month. JIBOR is expected to become a credible reference rate used for financial transactions widely in Indonesia. A credible reference rate will support the efforts to deepen domestic financial market by:
a) Encouraging money market transactions especially for longer tenures (above 1 month) which was lack of transaction due to the absence of credible reference rate;
b) Encouraging market players to initiate a variety of interest-rate base instruments;
c) Providing a reliable reference rate for derivative and floating-rate base transactions;
d) Serving as a benchmark for bank deposit and loan rate, especially for prime customers;
e) Providing a benchmark for bond market.
