The World Markets Company plc (‘WM’) provides an exchange rate service that publishes Spot, Forward and Non Deliverable Forward benchmark rates at fixed times throughout the global trading day. Since its inception in 1994, WM has been committed to publishing independent and transparent benchmark rates which, based on its methodology, it believes are reasonably designed to be reflective of the market at the time of each fix. As part of its normal business practices, WM routinely reviews its policies and practices against appropriate international foreign exchange ‘FX’ benchmark regulations and guidance, in particular the IOSCO Principles.
The WM/Reuters Closing Spot Rates service was introduced in 1994 to provide a standard set of currency benchmark rates so that portfolio valuations could be compared with each other and their performance measured against benchmarks without having any differences caused by exchange rates.
