Singapore Interbank Offered Rate (SIBOR) serves as the benchmark for the interest rates imposed by banks in Asian time zone as the rate at which other banks in the region may borrow funds. It acts as a standard and reference for banks that are in any way associated in the Asian financial market. There is another rate used in Asia besides the SIBOR and that is the LIBOR. the SIBOR is more widely used as it is set by the Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS) daily.
