Description:
LIBOR has been referred to as the world’s most important number. Short for London Inter-bank Offered Rate, LIBOR is a benchmark rate that is calculated from reported interest rates that select banks pay to borrow from each other on an unsecured basis. LIBOR is embedded as a reference rate in over $260 trillion of loans and derivatives, including student loans, variable-rate mortgages, corporate loans, futures contracts and interest-rate swaps.

After a LIBOR manipulation scandal riled regulators, LIBOR lost its global prominence and is being phased out. The transition away from LIBOR as a new, alternative benchmark rate is underway.

This program will provide a basic overview of LIBOR and an update on important developments as to why, when and how LIBOR will be replaced.
