Libor’s Funeral – Don’t make it your own

Jason Dobbs, Senior Manager, Zanders


The London Interbank Offered Rate (Libor) is scheduled to be replaced in 2021. Libor’s replacement effects globally over US $350 Trillion in open contracts involving derivatives, capital markets, loans, leases and other financial instruments. For years, Libor has been a benchmark rates used in valuing financial instruments and its replacement will impact everyone from financial institutions, to corporations to system vendors.  

In 2017, the Alternative Reference Rate Committer (ARRC) selected the Secure Overnight Finance Rate (SOFR) as it’s replacement. Corporate treasuries need to be prepared for the numerous challenges it will have on their reported financial instruments for transitioning and going forward. 

Listen to why the change from Libor to SOFR, the differences between the two rates and what is occurring in the UK and in Europe. Understand the latest in current activities and the steps required for transitioning. Gain insight into the effects on Treasury Management Systems (TMS) with new yield curve constructions and the amendments on existing transactions. 

Attendees will take away: • An understanding as to the background and reason for the change • The actions necessary for transitioning  • How this will affect the existing TMS application
