In the shadow of LIBOR - The attribution of BUBOR market

The Libor-scandal questioned the credit in the reference rates all over the world in 2012. In the London interbank market the fixing process was manipulated by some participant banks. The UK Financial Supervisory Authority identified the manipulation and fined many institutions (Barclays, UBS, RBS).
After the first reports many supervisory authorities decided to examine the fixing of local reference rates. There were investigations also about inter alia EURIBOR, VIBOR, CIBOR, BUBOR. To decrease the reputational risk the concerned banks in many times carried out an internal audit to map their fixing. This lecture is concentrated to the Budapest interbank market and its reference rate - the Budapest Interbank Offered Rate (BUBOR). The target is to compare the LIBOR and BUBOR fixing, to analyze the nature of the Hungarian fixing. The analysis is based on the historical fixing data of the banks. To the interpretation of the data is needed to know the process of the fixing, the differences between the LIBOR-BUBOR definition and the nature BUBOR market (size, liquidity, etc.).
