The introduction of new indices to replace the LIBOR benchmark triggered a series of enhancements to support the use of an overnight Repo Rate as a more stable benchmark. New processing was introduced in a series of six phases that supports various SOFR and SONIA indices. This included the introduction of new formulas and new features such as Lookback, Lockout, Observation Shift, Negative Spread, and Compounded Interest. New 30, 60, 90 and 180 Average Rate SOFR indices have also been introduced by the industry to cater to a smooth transition from LIBOR to SOFR. All such Average Rate indices have been incorporated as well as a new link to the Fed to obtain rates for such indices. In order to provide a fully automated solution, security interfaces have been modified to consume all security information without manual intervention. This new upcoming phase VII of LIBOR/SOFR changes will include SOFR compounding and rates fields which will be added to the interface between FinPro and impact, additional SOFR fields in MSD, and improvements to the security creation process for mortgages in GUS and IMSD.
All six phases are available for testing. Phase VII is currently in progress. Reach out to your account manager for any additional questions or concerns.

The TIC S form is filed by all U.S. resident entities that purchase or sell long-term securities directly from, or to foreign residents. This form is designed to obtain data on foreigners’ purchases and sales of all long-term securities (including equities and shares of mutual funds). Data is collected in aggregate form to facilitate timely reporting.
The TIC Form SLT report collects monthly data on cross-border ownership, valuation changes in fair value due to price, and transactions (i.e., a firm’s own and their client’s purchases, sales, redemptions, repayments of ABS principal, and new issues of securities with foreign residents) by U.S. and foreign residents of long-term (original maturity of more than one year or no contractual maturity) securities for portfolio investment purposes. The go-live date for the new TIC SLT Report is November 2022. The new report will improve the accuracy of the TIC system and collect information on positions in securities and detailed security-by-security data.
