The time for transition is now. The majority of FIs are already well versed on the issues at hand, have developed transition plans, and understand the need to transition to new RFRs swiftly. Yet, many have not put key aspects of these plans into action. Across both the buy- and sell-side, a ‘you first’ approach persists.

It is true that uncertainties remain in areas such as RFR market liquidity, the unavailability of term rates, the impacts on existing IBOR-based contracts and hedge accounting. However, these issues should not delay progress, as there is much work that still needs to be done right now, especially in light of the recent announcement from the FCA confirming the cessation dates for all LIBOR settings.

Ahead of upcoming deadlines, FIs have to take a proactive approach to the transition, particularly in relation to the system, infrastructure and technology changes that are required. In the coming months, key priorities will be around sourcing the relevant data on RFRs and adapting risk management practices to accommodate the new rates.

In this webinar, our speakers will discuss the considerations and challenges FIs still need to address, and more importantly, how to address them with the sense of urgency that is now required.
