Libor is expected to be phased out by the end of 2021. Alternatives to Libor rates are emerging across the globe and mechanisms for establishing contractual fallbacks and adjustments to Libor-indexed financial instruments are being developed to minimize disruption, if in fact it does end in 2022. If Libor does end, however, the impacts on treasury will be significant.

In this episode of AFP Conversations, sponsored by Santander, we’ll talk about what some of the implications could be for treasury and finance professionals, and what they should be doing in case Libor does end. Joining the podcast are Robert Owens, Director of Fixed Income Strategy for Farmer Mac, and Ruth Hardie, Senior Director of Client Services for Hedge Trackers, who both discussed this topic at AFP 2019.
