The transition away from the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) has been a long journey, and the impact on financial services firms’ businesses and customers alike is far-reaching. The industry has made a lot of progress over the past few years - from the coordinated efforts of regulators to provide guidance and legislative proposals to significant preparatory work performed by many financial and non-financial institutions.

Now that the expected end of LIBOR is less than 12 months away, it is important to understand the recent updates, and key steps needed to complete the final phase of the transition.

This webinar will provide participants with an overview of:

  • What is happening in the market in Japan and globally?
  • Key milestones we see in transition programs
  • Practical steps to achieve transition
