1. Items needing context.

A financial amount - or any piece of information - given prominence by convention or by design, that needs additional context, or adjustment, to provide a fuller or more meaningful description.

For example, headline nominal annual rates of return are not always fully comparable.

They would need to be restated onto a more comparable basis, such as the effective annual rate.


2. Items rightly given prominence.

A piece of information rightly selected and given prominence, being the most important detail for most users of the information.


EMIR - central counterparty clearing of OTC derivatives
"The headline EMIR obligation [is] that all standardised OTC derivatives between certain parties (broadly, FCs and NFCs that have exceeded the clearing threshold) should be cleared through central counterparties."
