Cvent Transition Guide

Overview

LIBOR has played a pivotal benchmarking role in global financial markets for 35 years, but as this role winds down and firms transition to using SOFR and other reference rates, millions of contracts worth hundreds of trillions of dollars must be retooled.

By June 2023, this once-dominant reference rate will be phased out entirely. Capital markets, consumer loans, and a wide variety of investment products will be affected by this transition. In the U.S., the shift is well underway, with regulator plans to accelerate the process through 2021 as recommended by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) in its 2020 Progress Report.

Join CFA Society New York as we invite leaders from across the industry to share their expertise during this transition period. In three sessions, speakers will address implications for capital markets and asset management, share their observations on the current process, and envision actionable strategies for firms to navigate complex legal, methodological, and regulatory considerations.

Don’t miss out on these timely sessions addressing an industry paradigm shift. Register now to join in the discussion.
