This is an important development as RBI’s participation will diversify and expand the profile of contributors geographically as it is the first Austrian bank contributing under EURIBOR’s Hybrid Methodology. Therefore, the representativeness of EURIBOR® will be further increased.“

We are very pleased to be included in the EURIBOR® panel. As Austria’s second-largest bank, we are obviously a regular user of the panel’s interest rate calculations and consider it important to support it. Based on our strong governance framework we will reliably contribute to strengthen EURIBOR®,” said Hannes Mösenbacher, CRO of RBI. Jean-Louis Schirmann, CEO of EMMI, said, "The contribution of RBI, a major actor in Austria and in Central and Eastern Europe, is important for the sustainability and robustness of EURIBOR® over the long term. It serves the money market stability in Europe."

The EURIBOR panel is based on credit institutions that contribute on a voluntary basis. Their commitment to EURIBOR® ensures its continued availability and supports EMMI’s commitment to provide a robust and reliable critical benchmark. All contributors comply with the requirements laid down in the EURIBOR® Code of Obligations of Panel Banks (COPB) for aspects related to their contribution procedures.
