Bloomberg developed the Bloomberg Short-Term Bank Yield Index (BSBY) in response to requests from a number of lending market participants. These firms were seeking a series of credit sensitive reference rates that measure the average yields at which investors are willing to invest USD funds on a senior, unsecured basis in systemically important banks. BSBY has been developed to complement and support SOFR by providing the lending market with an index that can help participants with asset/liability management (ALM) to better ensure availability of funds during times of market stress.
