Partner Malcolm Montgomery (New York-Real Estate) spoke with Risk.net about the potential impact of Libor’s replacement with SOFR on the U.S. mortgage market. 

“What the mortgage market can offer is inextricably tied to what derivatives can offer those same parties for their swap transactions. Even if you come up with a known-in-advance or forward-looking Libor-like replacement rate, if the derivatives market isn’t there, you can’t use it,” Malcolm said.
