The UK had a head start in its Libor reform efforts with the sterling overnight index average (Sonia), a mature overnight rate with a robust underlying market.

Sonia’s existence has taken the UK past some of the early challenges facing the euro and US dollar markets, but others await: liquidity continues to be concentrated at the front end of the curve; live, streaming prices do not yet exist, hampering prospects for a term version of the benchmark; and there has been little adoption of Sonia in bond and loan markets.

In this webinar, a panel of experts explores the challenges caused by the transition to Sonia.
