The Case for AMERIBOR As The Replacement for LIBOR

Welcome to Part III of the Odd Lots Libor series, in which Tracy Alloway and Joe Weisenthal take a look at life after Libor, the interest rate tied to more than $350 trillion worth of financial assets. SOFR is the Federal Reserve’s preferred replacement for LIBOR, but it’s not the only alternative reference rate around. On the third episode of the series, we speak with Richard Sandor, a serial innovator in financial markets, and the CEO at American Financial Exchange. He explains why he thinks his own proposed rate, called AMERIBOR, could be a suitable benchmark and replacement for Libor.
