1. The Hong Kong Association of Banks (HKAB) is the source and owner of the HKD Interest Settlement Rates. As part of the HKAB FRA terms, daily HKD Interest Settlement Rates are fixed by reference to market rates for HKD deposits in the Hong Kong interbank market. These fixings are usually released on the website of the HKAB each business day (excluding Saturdays) at 11.15 a.m., on the basis of quotations provided by 12-20 banks designated by the HKAB. The HKD Interest Settlement Rates are calculated by averaging the middle quotes after excluding the highest three quotes and lowest three quotes received from the reference banks.
2. The HKAB has ceased to calculate and publish the 9-month HKD Interest Settlement Rates since 1 April 2014.
