RIMES Regulatory Seminar: EU Benchmarks Regulation (BMR) – The Next Steps

Although the EU Benchmarks Regulation (BMR) came into force this past January, benchmark users have been given a period of grace, ending in January 2020, to seek authorization or registration for benchmarks already in use. However, as the full implications of the BMR fall into focus it is becoming clear that as 2020 draws near, uncertainty remains over how to achieve compliance, appropriately and efficiently.

We’re inviting you to this complimentary seminar to provide you with the latest guidance on the BMR, and explain the next steps required for you to achieve BMR compliance.
