Evan Marble, a member of Chatham Financial’s hedge advisory team, was a guest on the latest edition of Nareit’s REIT Report podcast. Marble discussed the planned transition away from the LIBOR in favor of SOFR. Marble said the most difficult issue to solve will be the effect of the transition on legacy LIBOR contracts, including contracts that exist currently and those entered into ahead of the transition. As for steps to prepare for the transition, Marble stressed that this is an evolving topic and investors need to get educated. He also urged companies to take inventory and assess their net exposure to LIBOR.
