The NeuGroup Working Group on Libor Transition brings together members to work out all the impacts and action items to guide their transition path from LIBOR to SOFR and other -ibor replacement rates. This covers the whole gamut of identifying all contracts referencing LIBOR, working with a term-structure based on an overnight rate, dealing with credit spreads on a secured benchmark rate, to treasury and financial systems upgrades and vendor readiness and more. This working group meets monthly with tracts for functional leads and high-potentials charged with implementing tactical and technical changes, with reporting back to our treasurer-level peer groups. This working group focuses on Libor-transition from a non-financial corporate perspective, yet draws on bank transition insight from the NeuGroup for Bank Treasurers. NeuGroup and this working group have formed a close collaborative relationship with the Alternative Reference Rate Committee (ARRC) of the Federal Reserve Board and the New York Fed to assist with their efforts to ensure a successful transition from Libor, and especially with its task force for non-financial corporate transition. Meeting type
Working Groups sessions are meant for interested participants from across the NeuGroup network, and approved non-NeuGroup members. They are ad hoc cohorts that NeuGroup organizes when a critical problem or issue has captured members’ attention. Recent examples include LIBOR transition, ESG, D&I, Treasury Management Systems and others. These groups often include both subject matter experts, as well as members just wishing to learn, with the possibility of splitting the groups for more detailed discussions.
