Press Release

TMA taking up the ownership and administration of the HKD OIS

The Treasury Markets Association (TMA) announces today (4 March) that the Hong Kong Inter-Dealer Brokers Association (HKIDBA) will transfer the ownership and administration of the Hong Kong Dollar Overnight Index Swaps (HKD OIS) to the TMA on 5 April 2016.  The benchmark will be renamed as  HKD Overnight Index Average (HONIA).

The HONIA’s benchmark design and determination methodology, as previously adopted by the HKIDBA, will remain unchanged (see Annex 1 for the specifications of HONIA).  Thomson Reuters will continue as the Calculating Agent for the computation and dissemination of the HONIA.  Similar to other TMA’s benchmarks, the HONIA will be subject to a governance and surveillance framework.  The TMA will soon issue a Code on submission of data for the Approved Money Brokers who are contributors for HONIA (see Annex 2 for the list of Contributing Brokers).  Going forward, the TMA will continue to review its financial benchmarks, including the HONIA, and propose refinements as required in accordance with international standards.


The HONIA will continue to be published on the TMA’s website at 5:00 p.m. Hong Kong time every business day from Monday to Friday.  The calculated rate as well as submissions by individual Contributing Brokers’ will be published at the same time on the Thomson Reuters instrument codes listed on index page <HONIX>  and <HONIZ> respectively.
