Central Standard Time
LIBOR is scheduled to sunset at the end of 2021. This change will impact nearly every bank in the U.S. as many loans and securities, as well as derivative contracts, are indexed to LIBOR. This session will introduce the alternative index proposed as the replacement rate, the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR). In addition, we will discuss the potential benefits and considerations of using SOFR. We will then cover what financial institutions have been doing with loan and derivative contracts to prepare for the market change. Finally, we will present what developments Chatham is seeing in the market.
