John Hutchinson is a quantitative analyst on Chatham’s technology team and a core member of the IBOR transition working group. John helped lead responses to ARRC and ISDA fallback consultations to determine how IBOR contracts should be modified to handle an IBOR cessation, which affects nearly $200T of financial contracts worldwide. One of his main goals was to minimize value transfers of derivatives and loans. With the IBOR fallbacks now determined, John has been leading an initiative to help clients most effectively handle operational changes related to fallback changes in trade valuations. To do this, John has developed risk-free rate forward curves, as well as new risk-free rate discounting and valuation capabilities.
Prior to joining Chatham, John founded a tech startup, was a tenured professor and chair of a multi-science department, and a Kavli Scholar.
