On October 23, ISDA has launched a supplement to the 2006 ISDA Definitions that will introduce new, robust fallbacks for derivatives linked to LIBOR and other key interbank offered rates (IBORs). The changes will apply to all new cleared and non-cleared derivatives that reference the 2006 Definitions from the effective date of January 25, 2021. ISDA also published a protocol that will enable market participants to choose to incorporate the revisions into their legacy non-cleared derivatives trades with counterparties that also opt to adhere to the protocol.

This virtual event will explore the key elements of the supplement and protocol, making this event a must-attend for firms with LIBOR or other IBOR derivatives exposures.

Registration for this event will close 2 hours before the live broadcast
