Overview

With just one year left until LIBOR may no longer be published, join us virtually at SIFMA’s LIBOR Transition Forum on Thursday, December 10, from 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. ET, to hear from industry experts and regulators as they discuss the top priorities for the final 380 days.

While a tremendous amount of work has been completed, there are still many open items and there is further work to be done. The transition to alternative reference rates will demand focus and coordination across the organization.

This virtual event will provide valuable information to those involved in their firm’s LIBOR transition efforts, including those on dedicated transition teams. Discussion topics include:

  • Remaining critical issues, including how to transition legacy contracts
  • The status of risk-free rate trading markets
  • Expectations of regulators and supervisors
  • And more

As we enter the final 12 months of time where we know LIBOR will be available, hear from the Chair of the ARRC and other senior leaders of the LIBOR transition effort at market-leading firms.  This panel will discuss where the market is in terms of transition, and where more focus is needed from the industry, other market participants, and regulators.  Has swaps market progress been as smooth as hoped?  How are legacy instruments being addressed?  What should we expect to see in the first half of 2021?

The rest of the world is racing alongside of the U.S. to transition away from IBOR-based rates to more robust alternative benchmarks. While things are moving in the same direction, they are doing so in different ways under different regulatory and legal regimes.  Hear from our panel of overseas experts to make sure you have the right base of knowledge to engage with your foreign counterparties and are prepared for cross-border implications from this initiative.
