Derivatives Market Institute for Standards (DMIST)
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.
DMIST Consultation Paper: Standard Regarding Timeliness of Trade Give-Up and Allocation
DMIST – with approval from its Sponsor Board – releases its first public consultation on a proposed standard on the timeliness of trade give-up and allocation. DMIST standards are developed through an eight-stop process that encourages cross-industry engagement and public consultation and feedback. The release of this public consultation is the fifth step in the process.
