Libor-OIS spread

The Libor-OIS spread is the difference between Libor – the floating rate at which banks lend to each other – and overnight index swap rates, which are set by central banks. As Libor reflects bank credit risk, while OIS is considered risk-free, the Libor-OIS spread is widely seen as a gauge of the creditworthiness of the banking system.
