SRS Acquiom has partnered with Debtwire to bring you the latest insights on the LIBOR transition. The impacts of LIBOR cessation reach far and wide: for nearly four decades, LIBOR has been the benchmark global standard for a wide array of consumer and business loans including mortgages, consumer loans, business and corporate debt financing, and derivatives. With U.S. regulators wanting firms to stop using LIBOR on new contracts by the end of 2021, financial institutions and other global businesses are investigating reference rate alternatives to replace LIBOR for existing and new loan.
This new report draws from in-depth interviews with 100 financial services professionals to reveal insights into how law firms, investment banks, direct lenders, hedge funds, and fund managers are preparing their businesses, systems, and processes for the LIBOR cessation. This report includes insights related to:
- Choosing alternative rates
- Planned timeframes to stop using LIBOR
- Perceptions of the Secured Overnight Funding Rate (SOFR) as an alternative rate
- Percent of portfolios already transitioned from LIBOR
