Hedge Trackers Joins AFP Task Force as Voice for Corporate Treasuries
Hedge Trackers, a leading provider of risk management solutions and technologies that empower companies to protect interest rate, foreign exchange and commodity price risk, has joined the Association for Financial Professionals’ (AFP) task force for informing Corporate Treasury departments about updates relating to the LIBOR transition.
The task force, specifically requested by David Bowman of the Federal Reserve Board, includes industry experts, large corporations, financial institutions and other interested parties. Hedge Trackers will be serving on the task force as a voice for corporates.
“We’re proud and honored to have the opportunity to play a role in tackling this important mission,” said Farah Lotia, Director, Interest Rate and Quantitative Analytics. “We’re keeping a close eye on regulatory updates and news regarding transition guidance and interest rate term structures. There are a lot of questions and still a lot to be worked out, but we’re prepared to keep corporates posted on any changes. We’ve already helped several of our clients check their contract fallback provisions and limit their exposure to LIBOR, so if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team.”
The Hedge Trackers team has released articles, checklists and other LIBOR-related updates to keep readers informed about regulatory guidance and transition action-items. While Hedge Trackers consultants are on call and fully prepared to assist organizations in developing personalized interest rate replacement plans, their technology is ready, too. CapellaIR and CapellaFX have been adjusted for the transition to SOFR-based pricing and inputs, allowing clients to implement LIBOR-related changes to their hedge programs.
