Recorded Webinar: Managing LIBOR transition20 April 2021
The clock is ticking on the decommissioning of LIBOR towards the end of this year, leaving financial institutions with little time to identify where LIBOR is embedded in their processes, assess alternative benchmarks and reference rates, and ensure a smooth transition.
Some will be ahead of others, but the challenges are significant for all as firms take part in one of the largest financial reengineering projects the world has ever seen. For those that make the transition successfully, there are benefits beyond compliance. For those that fail, there may be little regulatory lenience.
The webinar covers:
- Outstanding challenges of LIBOR transition
- Alternative benchmarks and reference rates
- Steps to take now to ensure your firm is compliant
- Technologies and tools to support transition
- The benefits of getting LIBOR transition right
