EU Benchmarks Regulation (BMR)
Entered into application on January 1, 2018 BMR has increased the scope of benchmarks to include all indices/baskets which are used as underlying for financial instruments and all benchmarks that are used to measure the performance of an investment fund or guide the investment allocation within those funds.
(e.g. LIBOR, EURIBOR etc.)
(e.g. S&P 500, MSCI World etc.)
as underlying for financial instruments
(e.g. Basket swaps, Structured notes, Credit Default Swap Index etc.)
Asset managers, sell side firms and institutional investors need to ensure that benchmarks they use within EU are administered by licensed benchmark administrators.
