Are you ready for the LIBOR transition?


The London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) is being phased out by the close of 2021. Taiwanese banks hold the second highest value of LIBOR-based loans in Asia Pacific, circa $19.2 billion of dollar loans* that mature beyond this date. This is behind China but ahead of Japan.

Join Finastra on Wednesday 15 July 11am to find out how you should approach the conversion to ensure a seamless transition for your treasury and/or lending functions. Eric Hsin-Hung Lin, LIBOR transition project leader for PwC Taiwan, has been invited to share his insights from a bank-wide perspective.

We will cover the following topics during the one-hour webinar, with a Q&A session at the end.
