On November 20, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published a video and accompanying presentation slides that it used for a webinar on the legal entity identifier (LEI) requirements under the revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) and the accompanying Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR).

The webinar covered:

  • scope and deadlines;
  • LEI requirements; and
  • reporting scenarios.

ESMA previously published a briefing on the importance of LEIs to enable firms to comply with their obligations under MiFID II and MiFIR (for more information, please see the Corporate Financial Weekly Digest of October 13).

The webinar materials are available here and here.
