The phenomenon of Financial Benchmark Reforms, unsurprisingly, has been in the limelight for the better part of this decade. The follow-up activities set in motion as a result of the post-crisis era directly translated into convictions, appeals, fines and more importantly tighter regulations and oversight. The various steps taken by regulatory bodies across geographies to restore the investor confidence is palpable. The emergence of distinct determination methodologies which are predominantly transaction-based for major benchmark rates such as LIBOR, EURIBOR and TIBOR is a testimony to this.
The emergence of such regulatory reforms involve an overhaul of the existing systems, audit processes, governance structures and contributory practices prevalent amongst the various stakeholders. Clearly, this is a 360 degree exercise that cannot be tackled in silos.
