In a recent interview with Michelle Tran, president of TMX Datalinx, John Lothian News delved into the world of Term CORRA and its potential impact on the financial markets.

Term CORRA, which stands for Canadian Overnight Repo Rate Average, has garnered significant attention in the financial industry due to its potential to reshape the landscape of Canadian interest rate benchmarks.

Tran began by sharing insights into the implications of the launch of Term CORRA for TMX/MX, the Toronto-based stock exchange operator. She highlighted the importance of this benchmark in enhancing transparency and accuracy in the Canadian financial markets. Term CORRA is set to provide market participants with a reliable tool for risk management and pricing across various financial products.

One key aspect that Tran emphasized during the interview was the extension of trading hours for the MX, which plays a pivotal role in the success of products like Term CORRA. The extended trading hours not only enhance the liquidity of CORRA but also align with international trading schedules, facilitating global investor engagement.

The conversation also touched on the Canadian experience, drawing parallels to the United States’ transition from LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate) to alternative reference rates. As Canada moves closer to the expiration of CDOR (Canadian Dollar Offered Rate), a comparable benchmark transition is underway. Tran shared her expectations for the Canadian market, emphasizing the gradual shift toward alternative reference rates like CORRA.

Regulatory alignment and cooperation have been critical in this transition process. Tran highlighted the collective effort of all relevant stakeholders, including regulatory authorities, in ensuring a smooth transition to Term CORRA. This cooperation is vital to maintaining the integrity and stability of the financial markets.

Lastly, Tran provided a glimpse into the nature of Term CORRA’s data. This benchmark derives from transactions in the Canadian money market and offers term rates for different tenors, enhancing its applicability across financial instruments. Term CORRA’s robust and reliable data has the potential to become a cornerstone of the Canadian financial landscape.
