Stay on when LIBOR is switched off
With a dedicated team of specialists at the ready, we’ll help you transition with ease, at speed and on time.
As the 2021 deadline for switching off LIBOR approaches, transitioning to risk-free rates (RFR) represents a critical, complex challenge for financial institutions. Yet, according to our 2019 LIBOR Survey only 20% of these businesses believe they are prepared for the change. Our skilled, dedicated global team can help you build actionable solutions to transition as smoothly as possible.

The 2021 deadline for financial firms to switch off LIBOR and transition to risk-free rates is fast approaching. But few are prepared for all the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Learn how Accenture can help you transition to the new with confidence.
Our comprehensive and industry-tested playbook can provide the solutions to help you transition from LIBOR with confidence. Set out in three clear waves, each one has been designed with clear and defined actions that we’ll tailor to your business.
