The Euro over-night index average (“EONIA”) rate is the onvernight interbank interest rate for the Eurozone: the rate at which banks lend to each other overnight. Thus, it is the overnight EURIBOR rate.
Due, perhaps, to reputational collateral damage from the LIBOR fiasco — cue obligatory dramatic look gopher — interbank offered rates really aren’t the thing anymore — EONIA is to be phased out by the end of 2021 replaced by the haughtier Euro short-term rate (€STR) calculated and determined by the European Central Bank. €STR went live in October 2019.
