Episode 107: LIBOR’s Long Goodbye
29 OCT 2018 - This episode is all about the London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR as it’s commonly called. Beth Hammack, Goldman Sachs’ global treasurer, and Jason Granet, head of the firm’s LIBOR transition efforts, discuss what LIBOR is, what went wrong with the interest rate and now why and how the financial industry is moving to an alternative rate. As far as what the shift away from LIBOR means for markets, Hammack says, “First and foremost I think the impact is going to be hopefully an improvement in safety and soundness.”
