Transition to risk free rates: an official sector panel discussion

This webinar recorded on June 25 presents a unique opportunity to hear from the European Central Bank, the European Investment Bank, the Financial Conduct Authority, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the Swiss National Bank on the transition away from LIBOR and other IBORs and towards risk-free reference rates, with a focus on the international bond market.

The official sector panellists discuss three main issues during the panel: first, progress on the transition to risk-free rates so far, despite the market impact of the coronavirus pandemic; second, remaining challenges to complete implementation of the transition in time, including legacy issues; and third, the importance of international coordination, how this works and what it involves.
