The sun sets on LIBOR and rises on SOFR

The sun sets on LIBOR and rises on SOFR

Are you prepared for the Agency transition to SOFR next month? Listen to our webcast and have your questions answered by experts from our team and from Chatham Financial.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are on the verge of a massive transition: multifamily investor loans will be indexed to SOFR, rather than LIBOR, for the very first time. Phase one of the transition is upon us which will influence all new and existing Agency loans and derivative products, and is going to impact all future Agency ARMs and SARMs, term sheets, and associated hedging requirements. With $1 Trillion of CRE finance in play, business strategies will need to shift, and portfolios will require adjustments.

We will continue to keep you updated as information becomes available. In the meantime, if you have any additional questions, please contact us.
