Libor Mortgage Mortgage with a fixed term and flexible interest

A libor mortgage is a mortgage with a fixed term and a variable interest rate which tracks the benchmark Libor rate (London Interbank Offered Rate). If you‘ are able to tolerate short-term interest rate fluctuations, you can benefit from attractive interest rates with a UBS Libor Mortgage.

How the Libor Mortgage works 

A libor mortgage tracks the CHF Libor rate, which is the interest rate that prime banks offer each other on short-term deposits in Swiss francs. The CHF Libor reflects the general interest rate level for short-term deposits in Swiss francs and is adjusted on a daily basis.

Advantages of a Libor Mortgage

  • Interest rates are lower than longer-term mortgage rates in a normal interest rate environment
  • The interest rate adapts quickly to reflect changes on the money markets (an advantage when interest rates are falling)
  • You can opt to switch to a UBS Multi-Year Fixed-Rate Mortgage free of charge at the end of each fixed-rate period
