End of LIBOR: What You Don't Know May Hurt You (October 21, 2020, 12:00-1:00 CDT)

Financial institutions and other industries globally are working to replace the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR). By the end of 2021, LIBOR is expected to be phased out, which necessitates adopting a new interest reference rate, not just for new loan agreements but also for existing loans. This course will discuss the change from LIBOR to a new interest rate reference and the potential impacts of making that change. This course will specifically discuss what non-financial companies should be doing now to ensure they are contemplating all of the areas to be impacted by this change in rate reference.
