The London interbank offered rate, or LIBOR, has been called the world’s most important number. Quoted daily across five currencies and seven maturities, the rate underpins hundreds of trillions of dollars in contracts around the world from home mortgage loans to complex derivatives. For U.S. dollar (USD) LIBOR alone, the estimated exposure is approximately $200 trillion. By year-end 2021, the rate may no longer be published – leaving less than two years – for the market to transition to the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR), the rate selected by the Federal Reserve’s Alternative Reference Rates Committee (ARRC).
CREFC serves as a member of the ARRC and co-chairs the ARRC’s Securitizations Working Group (SWG). We are focused on helping the CRE finance industry learn about the transition from LIBOR and serving as a platform to create a constructive dialogue on the challenges our industry faces during this critical period of change.
For any questions or if you would like to be involved in a CREFC working group on the LIBOR transition, please feel free to reach out to Raj Aidasani or Lisa Pendergast.
The mission of the Young Professionals (YP) Network is to provide a platform for junior CRE finance professionals to foster meaningful business relationships and gain relevant industry knowledge through networking events, seminars and panels.
YP programming events are developed by YPs – so the content is current and applicable in their daily work. Each YP educational event includes a networking aspect to build and foster industry relationships with both peers and seasoned industry leaders. YPs are surveyed by region for ideas for future programming to ensure educational and industry needs are met.
Additionally, there are networking only events held in a more relaxed atmosphere where YPs can mingle among their peers.
There is a discounted rate to conferences and seminars for those CREFC Members 30 years of age or younger.
