LIBOR: Why You Should Care…And Shouldn’t Panic

Regulations and senior financial market professionals have been developing LIBOR fallbacks (in case LIBOR become unavailable) and a possible process to transition from LIBOR to a new reference rate.  There are many misconceptions about this process, its timing and impact on markets.  In this brief session, we addressed:

  • Why regulators and market leaders are looking to implement LIBOR fallbacks and a possible transition to a new rate
  • What is on deck in the near term
  • What is (or should be) happening with loans
  • What is (or should be) happening with CLOs
