FAQ on Compliance & Governace
Is STIBOR BMR compliant?
Yes. The Swedish Financial Benchmark Facility (‘SFBF’) have made changes to the STIBOR calculation methodology to better align the benchmark with the requirements in the Benchmark Regulation (EU) and related regulations.
SFBF is as of April 21, 2023, authorised by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (‘Finansinspektionen’) to operate as a benchmark administrator pursuant to Article 34.1.a of the EU Benchmarks Regulation (‘BMR’).
SFBF has been added to the European Securities and Markets Authority’s register of administrators under the BMR. Finansinspektionen will conduct ongoing supervision of SFBF as an administrator of STIBOR in accordance with the requirements set out in the BMR.
