Course description

LIBOR in Crisis: Understanding Alternative Reference Rate Benchmarks

The use and quotation of LIBOR and other IBOR benchmark interest rates has been in crisis for the last several years. The financial world is rapidly transitioning away from LIBOR/IBOR benchmarks toward alternative reference rates (“ARR”) such as SOFR, SONIA, ESTER, and TONA. Industry participants are particularly concerned about an early termination of LIBOR and other quoted interest rates.

This practical 3-day course, LIBOR in Crisis: Understanding Alternative Reference Rate Benchmarks, is critical for those needing to understand the extraordinary upheaval that is occurring in financial markets over quoted interest rates. By the end of the course, you will be able to decipher and understand the alphabet of interest rate benchmarks, regulators, cash market associations that are involved in the process.
