Feb-18 LIBOR Replacement: Watchlist
In February, there were a few new developments on the LIBOR replacement/reform front:
- The FASB proposed Accounting Standard Updates to allow SOFR to be used as a benchmark rate
- The EMMI has decided to stop pursuing EONIA as a valid alternative rate
- The Fed announced the publication of the proposed LIBOR alternative rate, SOFR, will begin on April 3, 2018.
- The Fed's ARRC announced it will be reconstituted in 2018 to "more directly facilitate issues of legacy contract robustness and transition for cash products as well as derivatives."
