TraditionDATA launches Thailand THOR data as LIBOR ends

Rick Steves

TraditionDATA is the market data and information services division of Tradition, and provides financial market data that reflects real price interest in global OTC swaps markets, including interest rate derivatives, energy, and commodities, credit, fixed income, FX and money markets. 

TraditionDATA has released a full suite of Thai Overnight Repurchase Rate (THOR) analytical data enabling customers to better view the changing Thai Baht market.

Included in the suite is THOR OIS curve, based on a combination of prices originated from trading by Tradition’s brokerage desks and its expert analytics.

Thailand launched THOR to replace THBFIX

The data is available directly from TraditionDATA as well as on Bloomberg and Refinitiv under the firm’s Global and Risk Free Rates packages.

The Bank of Thailand launched THOR in April 2020 to replace the Thai Baht Interest Rate Fixing (THBFIX) which will be discontinued after June 30, 2023.

From July 2022 onwards, all financial institutions shall cease offering new derivatives referencing THBFIX, such as Interest Rate Swaps (IRS) and Cross Currency Swap (CCS), except for risk management of THBFIX legacy contracts.

Tradition adds Global Alternate Rates data

The data and information services division of Compagnie Financière Tradition has been working on adding Global Alternate Rates analytical data in response to the cessation of LIBOR.

This year alone, the firm has built and published over 30 new Interest Rate Derivative (IRD) curves. This augments the 30,000+ new interest rate derivatives instruments published by TraditionDATA and the firm has another six IRD curves built waiting to be published.

Scott Fitzpatrick, CEO of TraditionDATA, commented: “Having been involved in the first trade on THOR in September, publishing a suite of THOR curves bookends a great story in Tradition’s Thai Baht business. The TraditionDATA team has been tirelessly working to publish new IRD curves to help our customers navigate the global LIBOR transition and the full suite of THOR analytical data is the latest testament to their hard work. We will continue to provide our clients access to the data they need when they most need it and look forward to adding more products over the coming months.”

TraditionDATA is the market data and information services division of Tradition, and provides financial market data that reflects real price interest in global OTC swaps markets, including interest rate derivatives, energy, and commodities, credit, fixed income, FX and money markets. Real-time, intra-day, end-of-day and historical pricing originates from Tradition’s global brokerage business.
