Last week, I have introduced reference rates, their usage in financial industry, existing loopholes, attempted manipulation and proposed recommendations by FSB (with OSSG) to revamp these reference rates in order to make them robust and transparent (http://www.theotcspace.com/2014/10/29/reference-rates-upgraded-all-new-avatars-part-i-3). In this article (Part 2 of 3) I explain about these recommendations in detail and also the advantages of implementing them.

The FSB put out a PDF here explaining the state and progress of LEI implementation, within which it mentions they will "launch the global LEI system by March 2013". A simple person might think that means the LEI system will be up and running in a practical way, but nooo. What it really means is that by then it is hoped that the ROC will be in place,  to govern the COU, which the IG and the PSPG are investigating the location of, probably Switzerland.
