What will happen once Libor is gone?

The use of Libor as the reference rate for Libor loans is expected to be discontinued at the end of 2021. The National Working Group on Reference Interest Rates in Swiss Francs (NWG) has recommended SARON (Swiss Average Rate Overnight) as the new reference rate for loans in Swiss francs. UBS is collaborating closely with working groups in the five Libor currency areas in order to coordinate an orderly switch to new reference interest rates in the relevant currencies.

Below we explain what this means for your UBS Libor loan and what the alternatives are.
