The new EU Regulation on indices used as benchmarks in financial instruments and contracts is expected to enter into force very shortly and to apply from early 2018. It will introduce a new regulatory regime for firms that administer, contribute to or use financial benchmarks in the EU. It will also impact non-EU benchmarks which are used in the EU. The definition of “financial benchmark” is very wide and will include some customized proprietary indices.
This presentation will look at the relevant provisions of the regulation and consider its practical implications for benchmark administrators, users and contributors.
