A couple of issues of note:
Fair and Effective Markets Review (FEMR).
The final findings are now available (from the BoE).
Well, first there was one: Libor
...and what a kerfuffle that made with the "Wheatley Review"
...and then there were some standards...
IOSCO Standards for Financial Benchmarks.
The benchmarks being brought into scope are:
Sterling Overnight Index Average (SONIA)
Repurchase Overnight Index Average (RONIA)
ISDAFIX (soon to be renamed the ICE Swap Rate)
WM/Reuters (WMR) London 4pm Closing Spot Rate
London Gold Fixing (soon to be replaced by the LBMA Gold Price)
LBMA Silver Price
ICE Brent Index
I think all of the above are fairly familiar....but for me, I was not aware of the State Street tie in with WMR.
FCA's CP15/18: Fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory access to regulated benchmarks
Then of course, with all ths happening at the UK level...whats going on at the EU level?
In conclusion it leaves me wondering 2 things:
A little bit of surfing...
Minimum wage / Base salary.
After International Derivatives Week (https://idx2015.fia.org/) I was tempted to do a little swim for a good cause. A crossing from one land mass (UK) to another (The Isle of Wight).
Any feedback always welcome.
