Are You Ready for end-Q1 2021?

As the end-2021 deadline for the cessation of LIBOR moves closer, the need for firms to be prepared for transition has become ever more critical, with factors to be considered ranging from the system and balance sheet implications, to conduct risk and international complexities.

With four months to go until the end-Q1 2021 milestone turns off the sterling LIBOR-linked lending tap, UK Finance has developed a LIBOR Transition: Are you ready for end-Q1 2021? series of events, in collaboration with expert speakers from regulators, market participants, and associate members, to ensure members are up to date with the next steps needed for transition and provide them the opportunity to raise key uncertainties through Q&A.
