Financial Stability Board Calls for Action on LIBOR Transition

The FSB says the extent of risks associated with a failure to prepare adequately for LIBOR transition means the onus is now on firms to act. With limited time available until end-2021, it urges market participants to complete the steps set out in its Global Transition Roadmap.
