Bats’ pan-European approach allows for comparable benchmarks across Europe for the first time. Unlike current benchmarks, all Bats Indices will be created with the same methodology and rules.
The Bats license is straightforward and can be easily extended to other indices.
Where other index providers are making index licenses more complex and dramatically more expensive, Bats’ indices are free of charge for retail distribution, to media outlets and for benchmarking purposes.
Bats is a Recognised Investment Exchange (RIE) regulated by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and takes account of and follows the relevant IOSCO Principles For Financial Benchmarks for its indices.
