Planning for the End of LIBOR
Event welcomes policymakers, academics, journalists and industry figures to Cass to discuss end of the benchmark interest rate
LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate) is a benchmark interest rate at which major global banks lend to one another in the international interbank market for short-term loans. Regulators, including the Bank of England, have recommended a move away from using LIBOR after a spate of recent loan fixing scandals.
Event organisers, Dr Gianluca Fusai, Dr Ioannis Kyriakou and Dr Laura Ballotta said the event came at a crucial time in LIBOR discussions.
“The financial market is a complex entity and it is indeed about to become even more complex,” they said.
Speakers at the event included:
- Edwin Schooling Latter, Director of Markers and Wholesale Policy at the Financial Conduct Authority
- Darrell Duffie, Professor of Finance, Stanford Graduate School of Business
- Haoxiang Zhu, Associate Professor of Finance, MIT Sloan School of Management
- Dherminder Kainth, Traded Risk, Supervisory Risk Specialists, Prudential Regulation Authority
