NZFMA also maintains and oversees the NZdata Service which calculates and publishes official reference rates and pricing services that can be taken into back office systems or viewed on vendors’ screens.

NZFMA membership is institutionally based, with members providing a wide range of financial services such as corporate banking, trading in financial instruments and trade finance.

New BKBM Data Capture & Calculation - Goes Live on 20 April 2015

Further to NZFMA's notification of a change to the way that BKBM is captured and calculated (see headline below), we advise that the new system and calculation methodology will be implemented on Monday 20 April 2015.  There will be no change to the way that you view or access this rate via your information vendor.

Change to BKBM data Capture & Calculation Process

As a result of recent reductions in the number of banks willing to contribute to our Bank Bill Reference Rate (BKBM) and in the interest of reducing ongoing compliance obligations for contributing panel banks, the Board of the NZFMA has approved changes to the way in which transaction based tenor mid rates are set for this benchmark. Instead of relying on contributions from panel banks that are reflective of the traded market, the revised methodology will automatically extract actual trades supplemented with best bid and offers from the broker electronic trading platforms. These rates will be used to set actual tenor benchmarks and to provide a basis for interpolation of the less liquid tenors.  READ MORE.

NZFMA News and Events

2014 was the 26th anniversary of this event, and it continues to go from strength to strength.  Although the weather was a little inclement to begin with, some excellent golf was played and the day was thoroughly enjoyed by all.  Saturday night's black tie dinner and prizegiving was MC'd by Brendhan Lovegrove who provided plenty of laughs, and the event managed to raise a record $55,400 for Camp Quality.  A fantastic result, and we thank all the member organisations and individuals who continue to support this event.  The 2015 golf tournament will be held a little later in the year - 6-8 November.  Read more and view photos/results.
