Benchmark Regulation (BMR)
The EU 2016/1011 Benchmark Regulation requires that benchmarks used in the EU are managed by a Benchmark Administrator. Nordic Bond Pricing AS (NBP) was approved as a Benchmark Administrator by the Norwegian Financial Supervisory Authorities on 23 April 2021.
Nordic Bond Pricing is the Administrator of the NBP Index series family. NBP indices measure the total return performance of bonds registered in the Norwegian CSD (VPS) across different maturity bands, interest rate types and industry segments.
Nordic Bond Pricing appears on the ESMA register of administrators.
