The Object Management Group (OMG) is the official technical standards consortium which maintains the FIGI standard. Bloomberg LP, as the Registration Authority of the FIGI open Standard, is committed to continuously building, updating, and administering its identifiers to ensure they continue to serve as effective symbols for the broad uses required in today’s financial markets.
All municipal instruments are assigned a FIGI at deal issuance, plus Commodity/Index Futures, Commodity Spot Options, Options on Commodity Futures and Currency Futures, whether active or inactive, are allocated FIGIs. FIGIs are assigned to Commodity Spot Options and Options on Commodity Futures when the options are active (pricing) and have already been listed by an exchange. The research task to seek out these active options runs once a day at 5:30pm EST. Therefore, there is a short delay in assigning a FIGI to a newly-listed option. A FIGI is allocated to each Option Strategy issued by the CME (Chicago Mercantile Exchange), by the EOP (Euronext Paris) and by ICE (Intercontinental Exchange).
The following are allocated a FIGI: Currency Futures, Commodity Futures, Generic Futures, Spreads and Futures Strategies, London Metals Exchange Inventory, Generic Spreads, and Municipals.
