Sveriges Riksbank proposed reforms to the Stockholm interbank offered rate (Stibor) in a new review released today (November 28). The Stibor Review, commissioned in 2011, found no signs of any manipulation of the benchmark rate but identified a number of deficiencies in the rate-setting process. The review also appraised the country's financial stability.
The responsibility of setting Stibor falls to a panel of five banks and the central bank is unhappy with the small membership of the panel.
