"Are you ready for the end of LIBOR in the sterling market?"

In 2017 public authorities globally announced that LIBOR*, the most common benchmark that lenders use to calculate the interest rate for financial products in the UK, was no longer sustainable and the market should move to robust alternative rates by 31 December 2021

This will affect a significant number of businesses. It also impacts around 200,000 mortgage customers.

This new UK Finance LIBOR transition resource has been created to help SMEs and any impacted consumers understand what the LIBOR transition is, how it could affect them and what they need to do. It helps answer any key questions they might have, as well as signposting to all the other useful information available, and offers a glossary and a Who's Who.

Banks and lenders are increasing conversations with customers, looking to transition as many contracts as possible before the end of September to ensure a smooth transition in line with expectations from the UK's national working group and regulators.

If you have any questions speak to your bank, lender or financial adviser.
