LIBOR Transition in the Loan Markets Frequently Asked Questions (UPDATED)

Introduction -

For several decades, a significant proportion of financing transactions denominated in sterling, US dollars, euro, Swiss franc and Japanese yen have used LIBOR as a reference rate to determine amounts payable (in particular interest payable) under the relevant financing transaction.

This note answers the questions we are most frequently asked by financial institutions and their customers about LIBOR transition in the loan markets. The note's primary focus is on commercial loans under English law documentation. However, some of the answers refer to, or will also be relevant in, other financing contexts.
