From LIBOR to SOFR: A Flexible Architecture is The Key to Surviving This Evolution

At the grand old age of 51, LIBOR (London Inter-Bank Offered Rate) has reached retirement with its expiry date set for the end of 2021.

SOFR is the new benchmark for all dollar-denominated loans and securities and is based on transactions in the U.S. Treasury repo market. However, the switch from LIBOR to SOFR will create complexities that must be overcome if GPs are to produce transparent, on-demand reporting that will satisfy LPs.

In this whitepaper, learn how the flexible architecture of Allvue's system allows it to evolve with the investment industry, making a future proof solution for all investment needs.
