Benchmark for Quoting and Pricing Fixed Rate Structured Finance Bonds – Market Consensus Reached; Industry Guide Released
The Structured Finance Association, in collaboration with our members and market participants, is releasing our Consensus-Built Industry Guide as the market transitions away from the use of the LIBOR swap curve in pricing and quoting structured finance bonds.
The guide explains the market consensus path forward including:

- Transition Date: Monday, April 11, 2022
- Replacement Benchmark Convention: Based upon the BBG GC I25 screen as detailed in the interpolation guide
