Webinar Replay: The Global IBOR Transition

29 October 2019 Julien Rey

Across jurisdictions, committees are working on alternative Risk-Free Rates (RFRs) to replace IBORs with the underlying promise of better governance and oversight around major interest rate benchmarks. Regulators and central banks along with industry experts from leading financial institutions are driving these discussions.

IHS Markit is pleased to be part of the conversation in order to help our clients better navigate the transition. In September, we issued a cross-industry IBOR Transition survey to market participants across the globe, and we presented the results via a live webinar on Tuesday, October 22, 2019.

I was pleased to lead our virtual roundtable of thought leaders from IHS Markit in a review of the survey results and a discussion about the implications of the IBOR transition across multiple scenarios.

My fellow speakers included:

  • Robert Moeller, Executive Director, WSO Software
  • Marcus Schueler, Head of Benchmark Administration
  • Darren Thomas, Managing Director, Risk and Regulatory Compliance

The live webinar discussion covered the following topics and a Q&A with the audience:

- IBOR Transition - An Overview

- Why is the Industry Moving Away from LIBOR?

- A Not So Harmonized Picture: Overview of the new benchmarks across jurisdictions

- Survey Results:

  • Demographic breakdown
  • Understanding your firm exposure, fallback language and contract discovery
  • Preferences for IBOR Fallback - derivatives and cash
  • Risk mitigation, what should you do in the next few years?
  • Readiness: client education and communication
  • Surprise responses

The On Demand webinar is now available to be viewed here at your convenience, and the featured presentation slides can be viewed via this link. In early November, we'll also publish and share a final report of the detailed survey responses.

You might also find value in our ongoing IBOR thought leadership series.
