IBOR Replacement

IBOR Replacement
Several years after the LIBOR scandal, the old "IBOR" benchmark rates are finally to be discontinued and will be replaced with a new set of Risk-Free Rates, such as ESTER and SONIA. The transition will raise many non-trivial challenges relating to modelling, pricing, client management and contractual continuity.
