IBOR reform

The European Benchmark Regulation (BMR) and the decision of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), a British regulator, to lift the requirement to publish the LIBOR rate will change how certain IBOR-type interbank rates (e.g. EURIBOR, PRIBOR and EONIA) are set, and may even result in their abolition and replacement.

No dates available. If you are interested in attending the training, please fill the form.

For users of these rates, including financial institutions, issuers, share investors and users of financial derivatives, such a change requires assessing the impact on a wide range of areas, such as financial instrument valuation, financial management, contractual documentation regarding financial instruments, and IT.

The objective of this course is to present the changes in risk-free rates as well as the latest developments in related regulation and its implementation in various countries. In addition, the main impacts on financial institutions and commercial companies will be discussed. The course will be led by consultants experienced in analysing the effects of the risk-free rate reform.
