The London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR) is expected to be phased out after the end of 2021. Due to price-fixing scandals attending its use by financing parties, among other things, regulators in the UK and many other jurisdictions are requiring banks, investment banks, and other lenders to discontinue quoting or using LIBOR in financial documentation.
As the deadline for the end of LIBOR nears, financing market professionals are encountering a number of regulatory and economic challenges as they search for an appropriate substitute for LIBOR in their financing documentation and investment models. Meanwhile, borrowers and issuers who will have to obtain funding following the end of LIBOR are concerned about funding costs.
Join us to learn about the current posture of regulators on post-LIBOR market-pricing practices and how hedge and other investment funds are coping as they ready themselves for the post-LIBOR world.
