LSEG Response to HM Treasury’s Consultation on Implementing the Wheatley Review: Draft Secondary Legislation

The London Stock Exchange Group has provided a response to HM Treasury’s consultation on the implementation of the recommendations in the Wheatley Review of LIBOR. In our response, we make the following points:

  • We support the government’s decision to implement fully the recommendations of the Wheatley review and to bring LIBOR within the scope of regulation.
  • We would suggest that benchmarks other than LIBOR need not be specified as regulated benchmarks for the purposes of the new criminal offence; there is no evidence of a widespread problem of manipulation across the wide range of all other available indices.
  • There would need to be evidence of manifest market failure before any other index is brought within the scope of regulated benchmark activities.
