May 31, 2021


The webinar will offer updates on developments of reforming European interest rate benchmarks. In response to interbank interest rate manipulations in the past, new requirements for major interest rate benchmarks (Euro Overnight Index Average, EONIA and Euro Interbank Offer Rate, EURIBOR) have been introduced. Participants will hear about the implementation of the new requirements and the progress made on the development of overnight risk-free rates and their potential to serve as a basis for an alternative to current benchmarks used in a variety of financial instruments and contracts in the euro area.

We will devote the focus of this webinar on the latest guidelines on EURIBOR interest rates.

The webinar will take place at 10:00-11:30 CET. Active participation is expected and participants are highly encouraged to have their microphones and cameras available at the webinar.
