Benchmarks Under Increased Regulatory Scrutiny In a new whitepaper issued today, Thomson Reuters claims that regulators are requiring firms that contribute to financial benchmarks to face increased scrutiny of their record-keeping and information governance policies. The paper, “Information Governance Reform for Benchmark Submitters”, focuses on the global momentum for regulatory change following the Libor and FX benchmark scandals and examines the challenges submitters now face. It notes that, because most benchmarks are global and therefore cross jurisdictions, individual benchmarks may have multiple sources of regional regulations. As a result, firms are now required to ensure compliance with an expanded scope of guidelines and relevant jurisdictions.
