Monthly ARM Indexes: HSH LIBOR, 2000-present
This LIBOR series is produced by HSH as a replacement for the FNMA LIBOR which was discontinued in June 2007. HSH does not calculate or compute this value, but rather simply follows the methodology used by Fannie Mae prior to the discontinuation. HSH maintains this series as a convenience.
The Fannie Mae LIBOR rate was (and the HSH LIBOR rate is) are determined from information that is available as of 11:00 a.m. (London Time) on the second to last business day of each month. We make these rates available by the last business day of each month. You can download a spreadsheet showing a 12-year comparison of the HSH LIBOR versus the FNMA LIBOR.
LIBOR is an abbreviation for "London Interbank Offered Rate," and is the interest rate offered by a specific group of London banks for U.S. dollar deposits of a stated maturity. LIBOR is used as a base index for setting rates of some adjustable rate financial instruments, including Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs).
