ICMA publishes Quick Guide to the transition to risk-free rates in the bond market


27 February 2020 The International Capital Market Association (ICMA) has today published its Quick Guide to the transition to risk-free rates in the bond market, which is intended to highlight progress on the key issues on which ICMA is focused in this area and provide links to relevant resources on the topic.
A short podcast is also available.

The transition from the long established IBORs (including LIBOR) to alternative near risk-free reference rates (RFRs) is a major challenge for global financial markets, with the deadline for the potential demise of LIBOR set for the end of 2021. ICMA, representing the international bond market, is involved with various official sector sponsored working groups relating to this transition. The Quick Guide summarises the position as of today's date and will be updated at intervals as other developments arise.
