Transforming global benchmarks

Access to accurate, reliable information is essential to the integrity and everyday functioning of global markets and the economies which they support. Benchmarks form a vital part of this ecosystem, helping market participants to assess the value of assets and make informed business decisions with confidence.

As one of the world’s most experienced administrators of regulated benchmarks, ICE Benchmark Administration (IBA) is leading the way in benchmark reform. We are evolving benchmarks to ensure high standards of data collection, calculation, publication and surveillance. By establishing comprehensive and robust governance and oversight functions, IBA is enhancing benchmark integrity in order to give market participants confidence in the information they depend upon.

IBA also operates a crowdsourcing platform for asset risk data, used to support standardized margin calculations under the ISDA SIMM (Standard Initial Margin Model). This is underpinned by the same principles of procedural excellence and strong governance as our benchmarks.

Please read IBA’s benchmark and other information notice and disclaimer.
