Panels of market experts will provide important updates regarding LIBOR transition, including the movement from U.S. Dollar LIBOR to the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR), and the incorporation of risk free rates (RFRs) and fallback provisions in documentation, including for derivatives and loans. Learn how overnight RFRs can be used to replace term IBOR rates and related concepts such as compounding, daily simple averages, indices, lags, and observation shifts. In addition, the panelists will discuss the progress of LIBOR remediation, aspects of the Bloomberg Rule Books, proposed LIBOR discontinuation legislation, regulatory relief regarding IBOR transition and the ICE consultation on ceasing LIBOR. Attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of the current state of LIBOR transition.
