With transition efforts now entering their critical phase,’s editorial team is running a series of quarterly webinars, breaking down the issues facing the market, tracking the progress made and highlighting the remaining questions. 

The first webinar, on March 24, focused on loan markets. Subscribers can replay the webinar above, and find the other two here.

The conversation began by looking at the end-2021 transition target – and interim deadlines – which some market participants would like to see extended, given the overwhelming impact of the spreading coronavirus. The panel also covered the choice of benchmark, alternative rates and the methodology to be used for spread adjustments.
