Asset managers use financial indices and benchmarks when managing portfolios on behalf of their clients. Integrity and accuracy of benchmarks and indices are critical to the pricing of many financial instruments, and therefore play an important role in building confidence in the market and its reflection of the real economy.


EFAMA believes that a balanced and proportionate regulatory framework is needed to efficiently deal with benchmarking risks (such as manipulation and conflicts of interest), without unjustifiably hampering investment opportunities or increasing burden and costs for end-investors.
