    The scheduled phase-out of the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) by the end of 2021 is currently posing significant transition challenges for banks and all concerned individuals. Furthermore, ICE Benchmark Administration Limited (IBA) announced last December 2020 the extension of U.S. dollar (USD) LIBOR through June 2023, creating a change in the LIBOR transition process and opening more ambiguities in managing USD contracts.

    With these and other critical issues incessantly emerging in the backdrop, it is necessary for financial institutions to keep themselves abreast of the latest developments and develop a strategic plan to ensure that risks and pitfalls are well-mitigated.

    In this LIVE CLE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the critical issues surrounding LIBOR. Speakers will also offer the best practices that are essentially needed in this evolving area of law.

    Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
    • Overview of USD LIBOR
    • Recent Trends and Developments
    o LIBOR Indices Set to Transition by Year-End 2021
    o U.S. Regulator on No New LIBOR Contracts After 2021
    o Ramifications of ISDA Protocol’s Immediate Implementation
    • New USD LIBOR Transition Timeline
    • Red Flags
    • Practical Tips and Best Practices
    • What Lies Ahead
