Announcing the GFMA and Bloomberg LEI Webinar
Please join us on 17 October at 4:00 p.m to 5:00 p.m. HKT for a complimentary webinar on the Global Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) system, its regulatory and operational benefits, and rapidly-approaching European mandates on LEI use that will have significant impacts on Asian investment firms and counterparties.
This webinar is particularly timely given the 3 January 2018 effective date of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) II, which requires LEI reporting of all counterparties to trades in European markets. Failure to obtain an LEI will prevent firms from being able to comply, and regulators have been clear that firms without LEIs will not be able to complete trades.
