Register Today for the GFMA, GLEIF and Thomson Reuters’ LEI
When: 27 April 2017
Time: 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM HKT
This Webinar will bring you up-to-date on the continued expansion of the Global Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) System and help ensure firms are ready to comply with rapidly-approaching regulatory mandates. It is important that investment firms understand the uses and benefits of the LEI. In
addition, firms must be aware of requirements to be introduced with the implementation of MiFID II / MiFIR in Europe that will significantly impact Asian counterparties. Failure to obtain an LEI (by the firm or its client) will prevent firms from being able to comply with the reporting requirements under
MiFIR, and potentially from being able to trade, applicable from January 2018.
- Overview of the Global LEI System and its benefits
- MiFID II / MiFIR requirements and their impact on Asia
- Process and costs of obtaining an LEI
- LEI developments in Asia
- Continued work by the Global LEI Foundation (GLEIF)
Join us on 27 April to hear key experts from GLEIF and the LEI Regulatory Oversight Committee. We will hold a Q&A following speaker presentations.
