As an administrator within the definition of the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (“IOSCO”) Principles for Financial Benchmarks (“PFB”), FMDQ Exchange currently administers three (3) Benchmarks in the Nigerian financial markets, namely:

Benchmark Error Report

In accordance with Principle 11 (Content of Methodology) of the IOSCO Principles for Financial Benchmarks, a Benchmark Methodology should contain procedures for dealing with error reports, including the case for the revision of a Benchmark when applicable.

Consequently, recognising the importance of the robustness and transparency of financial benchmarks to the good functioning of the financial markets, FMDQ Exchange, as the Administrator of the FMDQ Exchange Benchmarks, has established a Benchmarks Error Policy drawing reference from prevailing international recommendations and best practices.

In line with the precepts of the Benchmark Error Policy, FMDQ Exchange shall publish on its website on a quarterly basis, the incidences of errors.

FMDQ Benchmark Methodologies

FMDQ Exchange Methodologies are a set of procedures applied by the Exchange to derive and calculate daily fixings and market closing rates/prices. The determination and calculation of fixings and closing rates/prices include a validation process whereby, among other steps, FMDQ Exchange reviews data submissions and fixes rates/prices pursuant to certain pre-determined tolerance checks.

FMDQ Exchange has put in place internal guidelines and quality control procedures that govern the application and calculation of all fixings and closing rates/prices. These controls are intended to provide consistency and oversight to the process.

All methodologies are subject to periodic reviews and amendments, keeping in line with best practices.

FMDQ Benchmark Policies

To protect the integrity and independence of Benchmark determinations, as stipulated in International Organisation of Securities Commissions Principles for Financial Benchmarks for Administrators, all Administrators are required to document, implement and enforce policies and procedures to address circumstances which may occur over the course of the Benchmark administration process. In recognition of the importance and significance of all its Benchmarks, FMDQ Exchange developed its Benchmark Policies in line with IOSCO’s Principles 3, 11, 12, 13 and 16 for Financial Benchmarks, towards strengthening and stabilising the Nigerian financial system.
