End-to-end benchmark administration

Our record in end-to-end benchmark administration is proven. With a robust regulatory framework and ironclad infrastructure, we are uniquely positioned to provide benchmarks built with integrity, transparency and trust.

Where we provide services in connection with benchmark administration, we do so in a manner that is aligned with the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) principles.

Restoring trust, promoting transparency in benchmark rates

Our culture is committed to integrity.

We are a recognised leader in efforts across the financial industry to re-establish and restore confidence in benchmark rates. We have gained a reputation in the benchmarking business which has resulted in regulators soliciting our input for reform work under way.
