Why attend?

The announcement of a global phase out of LIBOR will begin to impact financial institutions as they move towards a final transition ahead of 2021, with impacts and potential consequences remaining uncertain. The transition to alternative rates raises a number of questions and poses a number of hurdles in terms of infrastructure and re-documentation. Although the discontinuation of use of IBORs presses ahead, what the final rate looks like globally remains uncertain as disparities emerge in alternatives, questions remain in terms of the impact of the change on financial institutions, treatment of current contracts, impact to clients and impact to liquidity, markets and funding to highlight just a few.

The Center for Financial Professionals brings together experts from across the industry leading the drive to define transition terms and minimise impact on markets. This one day Forum will explore some of the key areas for consideration and progress towards a final reference rate that can be adopted across the industry. Just some of the key topics to be addressed include; System setup, Liquidity in markets, Conduct risk, Communication, Term and risk free rates, Global regulation and much more!
