Abstract:     
In this comment we advance a number of guiding principles on matters of benchmark formation, administrative governance, screening, transparency and regulation, in response to the OICU-IOSCO Consultation Report on Financial Benchmarks dated January 2013 (“Report”). We are looking for practical solutions which discourage, to the extent possible, attempts at manipulation or fraud while providing the most useful information to the market.
