Aktieninstitut is concerned about the negative consequences of the EU benchmark regulation
The EU is about to regulate the processes of the provision of indices and benchmarks. From Deutsches Aktieninstitut’s point of view summarised in this positio paper the proposed requirements for index providers go too far. The high regulatory intensity will make it more costly to provide a benchmark or contribute data to its calculation, so that important references might not be available in Europe in the future. This would also happen to the disadvantage of the real economy.
