Event Details


South Africa | April 07, 2021

Benchmark disruption is on the horizon. We have a look at some recent trends and proposed reforms in the SA and global markets in relation to the imminent discontinuance of LIBOR and the proposed changes to the methodology to be applied to calculate JIBAR.

Benchmark reform (in addition to the current pandemic) is likely to be the most disruptive event to occur in global financial markets in decades, and financial institutions must prepare for this. This session is targeted at financial institution banking and investment lawyers, funding principals and compliance, SA working group participants and treasury and operations.
