11th August 2016: Updated versions of the Open Protocol template and manual have been released. Please download the latest documents from the Download page.
Our task is to orchestrate an open protocol which standardises reporting procedures for collection, collation and conveying risk and exposure information.
The Open Protocol comprises a template and a manual which enable managers to report their risk and exposure information periodically in a consistent format.Provenance
The Open Protocol has been developed by the industry, for the industry. It is a methodology or a language. It is not a data hub or utility. There is no central 'owner' of the data. Hedge fund managers have complete control of their data and can decide to whom it should be distributed.
The template and the manual are freely available to download for all interested parties, here.
