Regulators and industry bodies have proposed and agreed on new interest rate benchmarks to replace LIBOR rates that are anticipated to no longer be published or supported past the end of 2021. These new Risk Free Rates will be broad reaching across all industries that use or invest in interest rate linked products, and affect a comprehensive set of financial instruments including fixed income securities, loans, and derivatives.
The transition to these new rates will require significant efforts by institutions to address the impacts on business activities, client interactions, control processes, systems, risk management and financial performance. Organisations must begin now to prepare for and manage the transition.
