Planning for the End of LIBOR

Event welcomes policymakers, academics, journalists and industry figures to Cass to discuss end of the benchmark interest rate

The Faculty of Finance at Cass Business School recently held a one-day event with policymakers, academics, journalists and industry figures to discuss planning for the end of LIBOR.

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
