On October 1, 2015, the Financial Stability Board published a report detailing its progress in implementing its September 2014 recommendations for reforms to Foreign Exchange benchmarks. Although the report states that progress has been made in implementing many of the recommendations, the FSB notes that there are still areas where progress has been mixed. Specifically, among other things, the report reiterates that the FSB recommendations are intended to apply to all FX benchmarks, not just the London 4pm fix benchmark. The FSB asserts that a more complete implementation of the recommendations, particularly regarding other FX benchmarks, is essential to building upon improvements already witnessed.
