The next 12 months will determine how rates markets cope with the death of Libor.

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. 

After sessions on loans and bonds, the third webinar, on March 25, focused on the derivatives markets. Subscribers can replay the webinar above.

The discussion starts by asking whether the transition timeline should be extended, given the vast workload associated with Covid-19 continuity efforts, before moving on to the volatility that has followed the spread of the virus. This year’s planned changes to discounting rates for cleared derivatives – the first switches are due in June – are also covered, eliciting some sharp audience questions. Pre-cessation is briefly mentioned at the end of the session.
