On 2 April 2019, Standard & Poor's published an article “AONIA As An Alternative to One-Month BBSW In Australian Structured Finance Transactions” (119KB PDF) where they recommended using AONIA as an alternative interest rate benchmark.
On 19 March 2019, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) made specific remarks regarding their expectation of some corresponding migration away from BBSW towards the cash rate, particularly for products or issuers where it made sense to reference a risk-free rate instead of a credit-based benchmark. SAFA’s intentions were in particular noted in this regard.
