NACT Webinar - The "Known Unknowns" in USD LIBOR Transition - and how are they to be resolved?

4pm BST/11am EDT/8am PDT, Wednesday April 28, 2021

Key dates for the LIBOR transition have now been set, but what do they mean for treasurers at non-financial corporates? 

Following a series of recent announcements by regulators, benchmark providers and industry groups, more clarity is needed on what those dates mean for treasurers at non-financial corporates and the exact deadline they need to work towards. 

David Bowman, Senior Associate Director at the U.S. Federal Reserve Board, and a panel of experts closely involved with USD LIBOR transition joined us to answer these and other key questions, including:

  • What are the alternative benchmarks available and the pros and cons of each for corporates?
  • What are the key transition timings and effects on the resulting renegotiation of various types of contracts referencing LIBOR?
  • What is "tough legacy" and how do we handle it?
  • How are banks helping corporates through the process, and what specifically should corporates be requesting?
  • Is litigation risk real?
