Will the Fed Replace LIBOR in 2017?

In response to controversies regarding alleged misconduct related to the determination of the London interbank offered rate (LIBOR), the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York convened an Alternative Reference Rates Committee (ARRC) to identify a reference rate that could replace LIBOR. The ARRC has identified two possible replacements.

In this talk, we will discuss:

  • The genesis of the ARRC
  • The rates that it has selected as potential replacements for LIBOR
  • The ARRC’s impending selection of one of these two rates
  • The financial products to which the new rate would apply
  • The transition from LIBOR to the new benchmark rate
