Today, The Wall Street Journal published a wonderful article on CFS Advisory Board Member Richard Sandor and his company the American Financial Exchange (AFX). AFX developed a market-based LIBOR alternative, Ameribor. It now trades on an electronic platform and has over 700 institutional members in 49 states.
The article also nicely chronicles Richard’s prior successes as a perennial entrepreneur in the world of financial products – https://www.wsj.com/articles/futures-guru-targets-libor-replacement-11555410600.
Richard outlined thoughts on a LIBOR alternative at a CFS roundtable in 2012. He delved even more deeply and broadly at a roundtable discussion “Creation and Evolution of New Markets: The Case of Interest Rate Benchmarks” late last year – http://www.centerforfinancialstability.org/research/Sandor-11-16-18.pdf.
