Interest rates - reference rates.
€STR is an acronym for Euro Short TErm Rate, whose formal publication began on 2 October 2019.
Before €STR's formal publication, the European Central Bank (ECB) published preliminary figures, referred to as 'pre-€STR' for the period up to 1 October 2019.
Pre-€STR's aim was to reduce market uncertainty, allow market participants to assess the new rate and its statistical properties, and provide an opportunity to adjust processes and procedures to ensure transition to €STR.
Pre-€STR was also sometimes written as 'Pre-ESTER', and €STR is similarly sometimes written as 'ESTER'.
