FIA and DMIST Publish Global Average Pricing Standard for CCPs

Subscribe to our newsletter

The Futures Industry Association (FIA) and the Derivatives Market Institute for Standards (DMIST) have released a new Average Pricing Standard, which aims to address the lack of standardised average price functionality across Central Counterparties (CCPs) worldwide. It builds on the previous standard for Improving Timeliness of Trade Give-ups and Allocations.

The Average Pricing Standard requires all CCPs to adopt minimum average pricing functionalities to enhance consistency and efficiency in trade processing. It includes a 16-point Functionality Table covering General Standards, Average Price Grouping, and Cash Residuals. The standard also provides a roadmap for CCPs that currently do not offer on-CCP average pricing. An Average Price Workstream will be established by DMIST to facilitate implementation and adoption.
