BEST-IN-CLASS INDEX STRATEGY AND INDEX DESIGN
Moorgate Benchmarks works with clients to build, or to upgrade their index offering, ensuring the client delivers indices that use best in class methodologies and where appropriate, cutting-edge designs.
We provide on-demand research, design & development resources for clients considering new indices or index-based products.
We do this by leveraging our expertise. During our decades of experience in index design and governance, we have discovered a number of crucial elements that are key in the successful launch of indices – and we know how to apply them to make the best possible indices.
INDEX GOVERNANCE AND MANAGEMENT
Good governance of an index or index family is vital for market acceptance. Moorgate Benchmarks works with its clients to create governance structures and documentation that ensure indices are free from conflicts of interest, and that calculation and review errors are minimised, without imposing dramatic changes on clients’ established approaches. Where appropriate, we help to create internal or user advisory committees that contribute significantly to international acceptance of an index‘s methodology.
INDEX CALCULATION AND INDEX ADMINISTRATION SERVICES
Together with our established partners we offer index calculation and administration services, including the provision of shadow calculations to confirm the accuracy of vital indices.
EU BENCHMARKS REGULATION SERVICES
From 1/1/2022, many indices used by EU market participants must be authorised in order for that usage to continue. We provide the EU legal representative and endorsement services needed for non-EU administrators to ensure their indices can be used within the EU. Click here
