Sadie Gurley, Head of Diligence Services at Mphasis Digital Risk was quoted in NationalMortgageNews.com in the article titled “Ameribor seeks to make its mark as an alternative to Libor” discussing the challenges anticipated in replacing Libor with SOFR.

"They haven't figured out how to create yet a three-month SOFR or a six-month SOFR or a one-year SOFR," Gurley said.
