FFA Next Gen '2020 Vision' Initiative — March 13 LIBOR Event in New York
February 28, 2020 | Issue No. 66

The Next Gen New York team is pleased to announce its “2020 Vision” initiative. 2020 Vision will be a series of educational seminars focused on developing events in the market that will touch all aspects of our shared business: lending, fund management, and the law practices that bind us. 2020 Vision seminars will bring together seasoned fund finance veterans and future industry leaders to share collective experiences and insights in a collaborative, insightful atmosphere.

Join the team on the morning of March 13 for the inaugural seminar to discuss a topic we are all currently grappling with: LIBOR transition. Next Gen has assembled a panel of professionals actively engaged in addressing:

  • LIBOR’s current status as the go-to benchmark rate for $350 trillion in products and derivatives;
  • LIBOR’s history and manipulation in scandals within the last decade;
  • Public and private measures being taken globally towards the transition of a new benchmark; and
  • Lenders’ and fund managers' approach towards LIBOR’s phasing out in loan agreements today.

Featured speakers will include:
