New York, NY, August 20, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: LIBOR is Out; SOFR is In: Opportunities and Challenges Explored. This webinar is scheduled on Thursday, September 26, 2019 from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm (ET).
Over the past years, various alternative rates have been crafted to effectively replace the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR). In 2018, the Alternative Reference Rates Committee (ARRC) recommended the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) and is now working to promote its widespread adoption.
The transition to SOFR is bound to alter the overall market structure, compelling firms of all sizes to proactively protect their interests and deter potential risk issues. Practitioners must be acquainted with all the recent amendments in order to address the crucial economic, operational and legal consequences of this shift.
Join a panel of key thought leaders and finance professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of the myriad of issues surrounding the LIBOR to SOFR transition and as they delve into an in-depth analysis of the current developments involving this shift. Speakers will also provide the audience with best practices and strategies in dealing with the accompanying opportunities and challenges in this rapidly evolving legal climate.
In a live Webcast, the speakers will discuss:
- LIBOR Transition Guidance: What to Know and Do
- Secured Overnight Funding Rate (SOFR): An Introduction
- Recent Trends, Developments, and Updates
- Potential Risks, Challenges, and Exposure
- Key Actions and Significant Considerations
