Swiss Reference Rates

Internationally, overnight interest rates play a significant role in determining the yield curve. Therefore, Repo transactions have become a key pillar of the money markets - even the Swiss National Bank (SNB) uses repo transactions as a means of implementing its monetary policy.This instrument allows market participants to better manage their short-term refinancing needs and therefore represents an important instrument for their daily liquidity management activities. Hence, through the Swiss Reference Rates an additional instrument was created, which replaced the TOIS Fixing, presents an alternative to the Swiss franc Libor and, furthermore, is calculated in Switzerland.

The point of departure of Switzerland's yield curve is the SARON®, an overnight reference rate based on data from the Swiss franc repo market, which replaced the former Repo Overnight Index (SNB). The Swiss Reference Rates comprise a total of 32 benchmark rates that cover a term spectrum ranging from overnight (ON) to 12 months (12M) plus two distinct indices for the ON term. The relevant calculations are based on CHF repo transactions concluded in the interbank market as well as on indicative quotes posted on the SIX Repo AG trading platform.
