Following the replacement of LIBOR with alternative risk-free rates (RFRs) for new contracts, new products such as RFR floating rate notes are emerging to support the development of RFR-based markets. Vibrant cash and repo markets with solid hedging tools are key to supporting the successful adoption of RFRs as benchmarks.

Experts discussed the following:
  • Developments in RFR cash markets
  • Current market dynamics, issuance volumes & liquidity
  • What if there are no fallbacks?
  • Is it a good time for Asian players to begin accepting SOFR in debt market?

  • Vicky Cheng, Head of Government and Regulatory Affairs, Asia Pacific, Bloomberg L.P.
