GDPR, LIBOR, IBOR, SOFR, CCPA, Brexit, IRFS-16…heard of them?

As the world continues to digitize at rapid speeds, they way we work, purchase, and consume information has completely transformed. The impact of these all these changes and how we better can protect ourselves is just becoming clear. As we have seen with disruptive technology in the past, governments are establishing new regulations and rules in an attempt to bring structure and law to this new digital world.

Accommodating changes to these new rules and regulations is no longer just a procedural obligation that organizations address on a quarterly (or sometimes annual basis). It is imperative that organizations maintain compliance with upcoming regulatory changes or face significant fines and disruption. As the numbers of clients, employees, risks, services, and contracts grow within an organization each year, managing regulatory response compliance has become a competitive advantage for the organizations that turn these obligations into opportunities for their business.

Types of Regulatory Response:

  • London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR)
  • Interbank Offered Rates (IBOR)
  • California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
  • ‘British Exit’ from the European Union (Brexit)

Regulation Spotlight: LIBOR

Impacted groups:

Lending

Global banks provide global loans to other banks and parties which have varying durations and are tied to LIBOR.

Investment Banking

Many investment instruments and securities (Bonds, Collateralized Loan Obligations (CLOs), Preferred Stock) are tied to LIBOR.

Potential use cases:

Interbank Loans

~$370T in loans are tied to LIBOR. Banks need to review their current loans and respective contracts to identify which loans are impacted by LIBOR, which have durations that go beyond LIBOR being phased out, which have the appropriate fallback language, and which need to be repapered.

Securities

The preferred stock market is ~$900B. Securities are structured off a floating rate tied LIBOR and many of the securities go into perpetuity. Most all are callable, so Bankers need to be able to answer questions from the securities’ prospectuses to understand the impact when the securities are called.
