The Bond Buyer highlighted Tyler Smith for his leading role in a national task force working through the phaseout of LIBOR, the interest rate that has served as a global benchmark for nearly half a century.
The article noted that Tyler is chairing a committee the National Association of Bond Lawyers (NABL) has formed to work through the legal and practical implications of the transition to a new benchmark. Tyler told the publication the committee will consist of members representing securities, tax, and interest rate perspectives, and it will have significant interaction with other national task forces focused on this issue.
