LIBOR Replacement Data for Loans

A comprehensive set of new data fields for understanding credit agreements in light of LIBOR replacement

The replacement of LIBOR as the base rate in the syndicated loan market creates a number of challenges in relation to credit agreements. While some newer agreements include language regarding the planned IBOR changes, there are many (particularly older agreements) that do not. The gaps in these agreements will cause uncertainty for a wide range of functions, including those with responsibility for portfolio optimization, investor relations, tracking accruals and trading strategies.

To help market participants manage the IBOR transition confidently, we are providing LIBOR Replacement Data for Loans that addresses rate information in credit agreements. Our dedicated experts are scrubbing credit agreements that exist in our global loans database and identifying the new data fields that will be needed to negotiate the shift away from LIBOR. These fields will be provided as a specific LIBOR Replacement Data for Loans offering.

Our LIBOR Replacement Data for Loans offering leverages the deep subject matter expertise of our Loan Reference Data team. It captures elements pertaining to LIBOR replacement, including LIBOR fallback language, across more than 8,000 active facilities with validated credit agreement data.
