With a matter of weeks until 30 LIBOR settings either cease or become non-representative, what’s left for market participants to do?

ISDA’s suite of documentation has been the industry’s bedrock for relationship formation, regulatory compliance, risk management and trade processing. As innovation in market infrastructures evolve, so has the ISDA legal framework that underpins it.
