Journal Article: Benchmark Transition under the new E.U. Regulation: November 2017

Dr Perkins published an article entitled Benchmark transition under the new E.U. Regulation in the November edition of the Butterworths Journal of International Banking and Financial Law.  The article provided an overview of the Benchmarks Regulation (EU 2016/1011), including its scope and proportionality and the requirements it imposes for oversight of the benchmark administrator.  In particular, and in response to concerns that some benchmarks might be withdrawn for non-compliance, the article examines the Regulation’s transitional provisions, which are of increased relevance in light of planned changes in relation to key interest rate benchmarks and the U.K.’s imminent withdrawal from the E.U.
