In line with the value proposition of FMDQ Exchange, the CP shall be availed the benefits of the value-driven quotations service on the Exchange, including global visibility through its website and systems, liquidity credible price formation and continuous information disclosure through FMDQ's Quoted Commercial Paper Status Report (QCPSR), to protect investor interest, amongst others.
