The London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) is the benchmark interest rate at which major global banks lend to each other.
Many financial markets currently rely on Interbank Offered Rates (IBOR) as a basis for pricing and valuation of assets, trading positions, loans and other financial transactions, with LIBOR deeply ingrained in many processes and contracts. However, the UK regulator announced in 2017 that the industry needs to be prepared to move away from its reliance on LIBOR by the end of 2021.
With this in mind, Robert Angel and David Cahill of our Regulatory Solutions team recorded a webinar discussion in August on what the industry is indicating institutions should be doing to help ensure they are ready. They also discussed how Northern Trust is helping its clients prepare for the transition away from LIBOR.
