The transition away from London InterBank Offered Rate (LIBOR) - the index used for many adjustable-rate mortgage products - represents one of the most significant challenges the mortgage industry has faced in years. With LIBOR expected to be discontinued at or near the end of 2021, market participants must plan and implement replacement indexes for both new originations and legacy products. This transition impacts institutions of all types and sizes, including lenders, servicers, service providers, and others operating in the single-family and commercial/multifamily markets. MBA is working closely with public and private sector entities to provide our members with the resources they need to ensure a smooth transition.
