Benchmarks

Regulation (EU) 2016/1011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2016 on indices used as benchmarks in financial instruments and financial contracts or to measure the performance of investment funds and amending Directives 2008/48/EC and 2014/17/EU and Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 ("Benchmark Regulation") represents a common framework to ensure the accuracy and integrity of indices used as benchmarks in financial instruments and financial contracts, or to measure the performance of investment funds in the Union and thereby contributes to the proper functioning of the internal market while achieving a high level of consumer and investor protection.

The Benchmark Regulation targets three types of market participants, namely benchmark administrators, contributors providing input data to a benchmark and supervised entities using a benchmark.
