The concurrent LIBOR transition activities remain to be a major issue for global financial institutions. Recently, the Alternative Reference Rates Committee (ARRC) released a consultation seeking comments intended as part of its fallback provision recommendations for cash products referencing LIBOR. This, along with the other trends and developments that are anticipated to arise, continues to cloud the current legal climate.
With the impending risks and pressures from regulatory agencies, financial entities need to develop well-established preparation and compliance plans that will help them in this changing landscape. It is of paramount importance that companies and their counsel keep up with the updates and developments in order to effectively protect their businesses and prevent risk issues.
In this LIVE Webcast, finance lawyers Olivier Favre (Schellenberg Wittmer Ltd) and Les Jacobowitz (Arent Fox) will present an in-depth analysis of the current trends and developments surrounding LIBOR transition. Speakers will also offer best practices in addressing the emerging legal issues in light of the recent developments.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
• End of IBORs (State of Play)
• Trading Risk Free Rates
• Fallbacks for LIBOR and Documentation Solutions for Fallbacks (Derivatives Market)
• LIBOR, SOFR, and Transition in a Time of Uncertainty
