About Term CORRA

Term CORRA has been designed to be a robust benchmark that adheres to IOSCO's Principles for Financial Benchmarks. Term CORRA will be calculated and published by CanDeal DNA using price and trade data from CORRA interest rate futures traded on the Montreal Exchange. 

Term CORRA's input pricing is based on actual futures transactions that are further reinforced by market makers and market liquidity, thus making it a more accurate and reliable interest rate measure.
