LIBOR “Transition”


While there is a way to go until the end of 2021 when panel banks will no longer be required to provide LIBOR quotes to the FCA, we expect to see more and more discussion regarding alternative benchmarks that might be used on outstanding and on new financings, the issues raised by the possible alternatives, overnight and term financing considerations, credit spreads and all related issues. Three recent statements and papers distributed by the SFIG LIBOR Task Force late last week begin to discuss these issues.
