QUICK Corp. began publishing prototype rates today. The rates are available on the website of QUICK Corp. (link to an external website), as well as on the Interest Rate Benchmark Reform (Preparedness for the Discontinuation of LIBOR) page of the Bank of Japan's website.

The Committee expects that the publication of prototype rates will encourage market participants and end users to push further ahead with their preparations for the discontinuation of LIBOR.
