Recorded Webinar: Managing Entity Data for MiFID II Compliance: No LEI, No Trade

19 September 2017

MiFID II’s “No LEI, No Trade” requirement mandates all entities trading with European counterparties across all asset classes need to obtain legal entity identifiers (LEIs).

This represents a major shift in the way LEIs are used for regulatory reporting and firms that are affected by MiFID II should obtain the relevant LEIs sooner rather than later in order to ensure they are well prepared.

With only a few months to go before the implementation date, this webinar will explore how financial institutions are approaching compliance with the client and counterparty identification requirements of MiFID II.

We discuss the findings of an A-Team Group (publishers of Data Management Review) survey on the current state of play and readiness of the market for the LEI.

Listen to the webinar to find out:

  • How firms are going to source and capture all the LEIs needed
  • How to ensure adequate maintenance processes to stay on top of LEI renewal
  • What we have learnt from the EMIR experience
  • Global impact of the LEI
  • Solutions and recommendations to help ease implementation
