DMIST was formed as an outgrowth of industry conversations following high volume and volatility in February and March 2020, at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. DMIST’s ultimate goal is to encourage widespread adoption of standards in the exchange traded derivatives industry that will help make markets more efficient, resilient, and competitive for all.
FIA and DMIST, the Derivatives Market Institute for Standards, jointly announced the publication of the Final Standard for Improving Timeliness of Trade Give-Ups and Allocations. DMIST also released a consultation paper on average pricing.
This is the first standard finalized by DMIST and an important milestone in its work to improve operational efficiency in futures trading and clearing. DMIST was established by FIA in April 2022 as an independent standards body. Its purpose is to encourage widespread adoption of standards that will help make markets more efficient, resilient, and competitive.
