    The scheduled phase-out of the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) by the end of 2021 is posing significant transition challenges for banks and concerned individuals. Further, ICE Benchmark Administration Limited (IBA) announced in 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 emerging in the backdrop, financial institutions must 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 an in-depth analysis of the critical issues surrounding LIBOR. Speakers also will offer essential best practices in this evolving area of law.

    Major topics that will be covered in this course include:
    • Overview of USD LIBOR
    • Recent Trends and Developments
    o LIBOR Indices Set to Transition by Year-End 2021
