How will you benefit?

LIBOR, the most widely used interest rate benchmark in the world, is expected to phase out by the end of 2021.  More than $350 trillion in notional of cash and derivative securities currently track LIBOR globally, approximately $200 trillion of which is linked to USD LIBOR.  The CME and ICE have begun to trade 1-month and 3-month futures contracts linked to SOFR, while both LCH and CME have provided clearing for SOFR derivatives. SOFR OIS swaps and basis swaps versus LIBOR and Fed funds have also started to transact in the customer and inter-dealer markets. The market for FRNS indexed to SOFR has also expanded to approximately $280B as of September 2019.

The capital markets industry started to prepare for an alternative rate to LIBOR more than three years ago, and whilst a lot of progress has been made the buy-side must ready itself for several critical milestones ahead.  Since the Federal Reserve began publishing SOFR rates in March of 2018, an infrastructure to support this evolving market has begun to take shape, but the next two years involve several critical milestones and it’s time for buy-side firms to prepare for the transition. In his remarks at the 2019 U.S. Treasury Market Conference, John Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer of the FRBNY, delivered a wakeup call when he said, “The clock is ticking, LIBOR’s days are numbered, and we all need to play our part in preparing the industry for January 1, 2022.”
