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.

LMA publishes South African law revised replacement of screen rate language to assist with JIBAR transition

On 2 November 2023, we published a user guide and revised recommended form of replacement of screen rate clause for the LMA’s South African law documents (“SA revised replacement of screen rate clause”). 

The SA revised replacement of screen rate clause is based on the LMA’s existing 2018 revised replacement of screen rate clause (as updated) produced in the context of LIBOR transition. However, it also has regard to the work of the MPG on sample reference language for bilateral loans and reflects specifics of the South African market and JIBAR transition. In order to provide additional context, there are footnotes explaining any differences in the LMA clause and the MPG sample clause.
