the RMA Chicago Chapter presents:
LIBOR Replacement Panel

In a recent Forbes article, Bloomberg estimates
“about $350 trillion of derivatives, loans, mortgages, commercial paper,
and other debt is tied to Libor.”
Our panel of experts will discuss issues every firm should consider about LIBOR replacement including:

  • What preparations does your firm need to consider as the industry transitions away from LIBOR?       
  • What is the Secured Overnight Funding Rate (SOFR) and what are the challenges, milestones and timelines related to this viable alternative?
  • What is the difference between a secured rate vs an unsecured rate?
  • For various products set to mature after 2021, what challenges exist and what should firms be doing to address them?
  • What legal issues do you need to consider related to the transition?
  • What valuation and pricing risks will firms face when moving to a new curve?
  • What are the risks concerning model development, validation and model risks?
