Workshop Day: Tuesday 19th October
LIBOR Transition: Almost there and so much to do for quants
- (Pre-Conference Workshop included complimentary)
LIBOR will cease in a couple of months. The cessation is the end of a long journey and the start of many others. The quantitative finance impacts of the transitions will stay with us for many years. The new financial instruments resulting from the fallback may look familiar but they all have their idiosyncrasies that make them special. Moreover the rules are different for different instruments; back-to-back portfolios before the fallback may not be back-to-back after.
The workshop will go through some of those issues and describe some of the quant’s developments that will still be required after the cessation.
