Why You Should Attend

DIGITAL WEEK - 2nd Annual Benchmark Rate Reform for Treasury and Accounting

Our Digital Week Format

We recognise that in today’s worlds our clients need information delivered in a different way; one that recognises that fluid working hours and flexible working environments are the “new normal”. Our DIGITAL WEEK FORMAT is designed to compliment this new way of working by delivering three hours of highly focused, practitioner drive content per day, spread across your working week through our innovative Live+ online streaming platform.

Event Focus

This marcus evans conference will investigate the impact of the transition to risk free rates on the fair value of financial instruments and P&L volatility.

As LIBOR’s demise draws closer, more strain will be placed on financial instruments to move to the newer rates. This shift will introduce changes in the fair value of these instruments and threaten the hedging relationships they are attached to. As time goes on, the threat of ineffective hedging increases, with the associated dangers of de-designation, and the need to potentially unwind certain hedges. Whilst the IASB have released their phase 1 relief and tackled many of these issues, the work is far from over – with further effort needed to manage the transition and period preceding it. It will be crucial that the impact on balance sheets and hedge accounting is foreseen and work is done to mitigate potential issues. With P&L volatility, basis risk, and broken or ineffective hedge relationships looming, institutions must work now to effectively navigate the transition to the backdrop of regulatory guidance.
