Evolving Regulatory Landscape

We are pleased to invite you to attend the above workshop.  The seminar is timed as Interbank Offer Rates (IBOR) have been the market reference rate over the last 30 years.  However, following well-documented issues with manipulation of these rates, and the concurrent sharp post-crises decline in liquidity of interbank unsecured funding market, regulators have decided to change the way they are reported and introduce new reference rates.  The move away from IBOR rates to overnight rates has been indeed prompted by the G20 and the Financial Stability Board.  For example, in the US Market, the Fed Fund rate has been replaced by the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR).  In the Eurozone, Euro Short-term Rate (ESTER) will overtake Euribor, whilst in the UK SONIA is the candidate replacement put forward by the Bank of England; similar changes will occur in other countries.

Aim

The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts from both the academia and the industry to address the most relevant issues from the transition between benchmarks.  Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, robustness of valuation models, fall-back provisions, Solvency II dependencies, and FOREX exposures.

Networking

This workshop represents a unique opportunity to engage with key policymakers and other interested parties including representatives from banks, financial advisors, consultancies, lawyers, academics, regulators, investment managers, insurers and business such as commercial lending, market infrastructure, corporate treasury.
