LIBOR’s Demise Means Changes Are Coming

As brought to light in a significant rate-rigging scandal from a few years ago, British regulators who oversee the rate calculation have determined that there are not enough actual transactions to support the estimates made by the banks, and so the estimates will no longer be required after 2021. This spells the end of LIBOR.
