Industry Supports Pre-Cessation LIBOR Fallbacks, Finds ISDA

Subscribe to our newsletter

ISDA has found that a significant majority of practitioners would prefer to include pre-cessation and permanent cessation fallbacks without optionality or flexibility. The feedback comes in response to a consultation launched by ISDA in February which asked whether the 2006 ISDA Definitions should be amended to include fallbacks that would apply to all covered derivatives referencing LIBOR following a permanent cessation of the benchmark or a ‘non-representative’ pre-cessation event, whichever occurs first. ISDA now expects to publish amendments to the 2006 ISDA Definitions to incorporate the fallbacks for new trades in July. A protocol will simultaneously be launched to allow participants to incorporate the revisions into legacy trades if they wish. Both will come into effect before the end of the year.
