The European Central Bank (ECB) is considering the publication of compounded term rates based on the euro short-term rate (€STR) and solicits views of the public on this matter by launching a public consultation. The publication would take place on a daily basis shortly after the €STR publication. Published maturities could range from one week up to one year. A daily index, making it possible to compute compounded rates over non-standard periods, is also envisaged as part of the publication.
