Bringing certainty to legacy benchmark transition
As part of our continued rollout of triReduce benchmark conversion, we will be offering all cycle participants the opportunity to test receiving risk replacement trades as part of their triReduce Unwind Proposal. These risk replacement trades play an integral role in the proactive management of any benchmark transition for interest rate swaps.
