Introduction
HKD Interest Settlement Rates (commonly known as Hong Kong Interbank Offered Rates or HIBOR) are the rates of interest for Hong Kong Dollar deposits for the relevant period calculated by HKAB each day (except Saturdays and general holidays) and displayed at 11:15 a.m. on the website of HKAB. The fixings are made on the basis of quotations provided by 12-20 banks designated by HKAB as reference banks and are available for HKD deposit maturity ranging between overnight deposits and 12 months. The fixings are determined by averaging the middle quotes after excluding the highest three quotes and lowest three quotes received from the reference banks with the result rounded up, if necessary, to the fifth decimal place.
