Developing Markets

Bringing about increased efficiencies and standardisation

Developing Markets

Developing markets offer great opportunities as global dynamics shift, demand for their resources increases and new technologies evolve. At the LMA, we seek to bring about increased efficiencies and standardisation in developing markets, whilst educating our members about the opportunities and challenges they may face when operating in these regions.

We are pleased to be returning to Kenya to hold our LMA African Loan Documentation Course from Tuesday, 7 - Thursday, 9 February 2023 at Tamarind Tree Hotel, Nairobi. 

This 3 day course is aimed at those working in Africa in the banking and institutional investor markets and the legal profession, looking to gain a more in-depth understanding of the LMA primary documentation.

New E-Learning Course

We are delighted to announce the introduction of our new e-learning course 'Transitioning to RFRs'. 

The course has been designed to educate members on the transition from LIBOR and shift to risk-free rates (RFRs). The course currently consists of two initial modules: 'Introduction - Replacing LIBOR' and 'RFRs – differences to LIBOR'. Further modules will be added in due course.  We hope these modules will be of great benefit to our members and help remedy any outstanding uncertainties regarding the shift to RFRs.
