Status of interest rate benchmark reform. Presentations at the 3rd Conference organised by the CNMV on 15 June 2021
On 15 June 2021, the CNMV organized the III Conference on the "Status of interest rate benchmark reform" in which the challenges possed by the forthcoming disappearance of Libor, the most widely used benchmark in the world, and its replacement by risk-free rates were highlighted. In the euro zone, the Euribor modernization process is consolidating and the transition to the risk-free benchmark, the €STR, is progressing reasonably. All these issues were analysed by a prominent group of interveners whose contributions are compiled in this publication, thus helping to disseminate the reforms and promote the adaptation of markets and their participants in an orderly manner and without risks to financial stability.
