BME meets user needs

Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2014

BME

In 2014, BME Innova renewed its UNE-EN ISO

9001:2008 international quality seal granted by

AENOR. This certification, which has been extended

to include advisory services and training in interna-

tional financial markets, attests to the quality of BME

Innova’s activities.

Instituto BME assures customers seeking educational

services that its quality commitment extends beyond

the mere provision of services, to the ultimate goal of

addressing their true education needs, meeting their

expectations and generating the utmost satisfaction.

This enables the company to achieve its ultimate

objective, i.e. to ensure maximum trust among its

customers and establish a lasting relationship. Insti-

tuto BME also extends a quality commitment to its

customers, obtaining in 1998 the AENOR Registered

Firm Certificate, renewed each year in accordance

with the UNE-EN ISO 9001:2008 quality standard.

NEW BME PROJECTS IN 2014

In 2014, BME not only continued to work on those

services and products it started to develop in the

previous year and which respond to the needs of

market clients and users, but the company was also

aware of new requirements and worked to address

the demands of financial market participants.

In order to improve the quality of the services offered,

REGIS-TR, the European trade repository, set up by

BME and Clearstream Banking Luxemburg, S.A. and

which in November 2013 received ESMA authorisa-

tion, signed a collaboration agreement with

tional services such as reporting, in accordance with

EMIR. Since operations began on 12 February 2014,

REGIS-TR has reached around 1,200 clients and 1,000

million trades.

During the year, the IBEX® index family was also

extended, with BME offering eight new traded indices

on the IBEX MEDIUM CAP®, IBEX SMALL CAP®, IBEX

TOP DIVIDENDO® and FTSE 4GOOD IBEX® as of 26

February 2014.

Among the various initiatives offered to market partic-

ipants, through its subsidiary

Visual Trader Systems

and

in conjunction with

Qubitia

, on 3 June 2014 BME made

available a tradingmodel creation systemon its platform

whereby clients can create, test andmonitor algorithms.

Also, through MEFF, the company introduced its trade

repository for the energy contract group.

At the start of the year, the alternative fixed income

market, MARF, which commenced operations on 7

October 2013, launched an intensive information and

promotion campaign among companies throughout

Spain, while the first issues were admitted to trading.

At 31 December 2014, MARF featured 13 bond and

promissory note issues, 20 Members and 21 Regis-

tered Advisors.

On 24 April 2014, the stock exchanges admitted

Discount investment products which are linked to

lateral bullish or bearish investment strategies on an

underlying asset.

Also, on 26 June 2014, the first exchange-traded fund

on the IBEX® MEDIUM CAP was admitted to trading,

while on 29 July, the first
