Transitioning to a post-LIBOR world: How to manage risks and seize opportunities in a changing environment

Libor is a cornerstone of today’s financial industry, underpinning an estimated $350 trillion in contracts. The size, scale and scope of Libor usage makes the transition to a post-Libor world by 2021 arguably one of the biggest challenges facing financial firms.

This webinar provides a critical understanding of Libor’s current status, the transition, building curves, valuation and modelling, and advancing technology to prepare for market changes.

Key topics discussed:

  • The current status of the risk-free rate (RFR) transition plan and how market participants are using RFRs Valuation Adjustment
  • How market participants can prepare for and manage a forced transition via fallback language
  • The best approach to building curves in less liquid RFR markets and what additional risk management measures are required
  • How and when RFR liquidity can reach critical mass
  • The impact of shifting from liquid Libor to less liquid RFRs and how will that will impact derivatives pricing
  • The wider impacts of losing a rate that is so prevalent in valuation, risk and forecasting models
  • A checklist for systems upgrades – the size of the IT challenge and what changes firms need to make
