This factsheet is an update to the joint ISDA and GFMA publication from July 2017.
This document highlights the pressing need for market participants to obtain an LEI. Forthcoming global regulations will shortly require the reporting of LEIs for a wider universe of over-the-counter derivatives transactions. This will apply to entities in Asia-Pacific in many cases. Other regulators, including those in the US and Europe, already require market participants to obtain LEIs. Firms large and small need to act now to ensure they comply.
The publication can be used in any LEI outreach efforts. Members are encouraged to share this document with clients to highlight the need to obtain an LEI. Future translations will be published on the Data & Reporting section of the ISDA website.
