The IBOR (Interbank Offered Rate) transition in America is a significant change to the way financial markets operate. IBORs are benchmark interest rates that are used to price trillions of dollars’ worth of financial products, including mortgages, loans, and derivatives. However, in recent years, regulators have determined that these rates are not sufficiently robust, and have urged market participants to transition away from them, setting a deadline of 30th June 2023.
The transition away from IBORs in America will affect a wide range of financial products, and market participants will need to make significant changes to their systems and processes. However, the transition will also bring a number of benefits to the financial services industry. For example, the new rates that will replace IBORs, such as the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR), are based on actual transactions in the market, rather than the estimates and submissions used to calculate IBORs.
In addition, the transition will improve the transparency of financial markets, and reduce the potential for manipulation. It will also align the financial markets more closely with the underlying economy, providing more accurate pricing for borrowers and lenders.
