Swedish Financial Benchmark Facility (SFBF)
The Swedish Financial Benchmark Facility is an independent benchmark administrator, specifically established to administer the Stockholm Interbank Offered Rate, known as STIBOR.
Our primary purpose is to provide a best practice governance environment for the STIBOR benchmark applying international guidelines and regulations, overseen by an independent Oversight Committee.
SFBF is a Swedish incorporated subsidiary of Financial Benchmarks Sweden (FBS).
STIBOR has been classified as a critical interest rate benchmark. SFBF is in the process for seeking authorisation from the Swedish FSA, Finansinspektionen, to operate as an approved Administrator under regulation EU 2016/1011 for financial benchmarks (EU BMR). SFBF intends to submit a formal application for authorisation during 2021.
