Nov-18 LIBOR Replacement: Watchlist
As 2018 draws to a close, we see that Alternative Reference Rates are continuing to gain traction while IBOR fallbacks begin to develop:
- ISDA announced its proposed methodology for fallbacks for derivatives contracts that reference certain interbank offer rates (IBORs).
- SOFR-based debt issuance is now over $26 billion and the most recent issuance extends into 2021. See CME SOFR page for details or check out our market update summary here.
- 2W, 2M and 9M tenors of EURIBOR have ceased to be published by the EMMI due to low levels of trading activity for these terms.
We've updated our handy watchlist with all the latest: WATCHLIST: Replacing LIBOR.
