Why You Should Attend

Benchmark Rates Reform: Valuations, Discounting and Forward Risk

This marcus evans conference will serve as a platform to prepare banks for the impact of the shift from Libor and Eonia on derivatives and swaps valuations and legacy inventory. The countdown has begun–in less than two years, Europeans banks will need to switch to a new benchmark to price billions of euros of fixed income derivatives. In the wake of the alleged rigging scandals over Libor, and EMMI’s admission in February that the Eonia rate may not meet compliance checks under the benchmark regulation for 2020, the pricing paradigm faces enormous disruption. With Eonia and Libor facing extinction, the industry is collectively determined to move towards a new, more robust type of benchmark reflective of real trades. Yet many crucial issues are still opaque, with authorities are still pondering which risk-free rate to choose for the official fixing. What can be said is there is a lot to play for—the challenges extend from the details of the replacement rates, to the repapering of legacy contracts, construction of new curves and management of risk exposure.

Key Topics

  • Learn the crucial information necessary to prepare your firm for the shift away from Libor and Eonia
