EMIR and LEI Information

The EMIR and LEI Information page in Account Management lets account holders who are subject to the EMIR regulation change their EMIR election.

About EMIR and LEI

European Markets and Infrastructure Regulations (EMIR) is a European Union regulation designed to make the derivatives markets more transparent by requiring counterparties to derivatives transactions to report trades, positions, collateral and valuations to the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), the European regulatory body. All counterparties with reporting obligations under EMIR must have a Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) in order to report.

All of our clients who are subject to the EMIR regulation will see or will have already seen the EMIR Election Form upon logging into Account Management. After you have completed the EMIR Election process, you will be granted access to the full Account Management, AND will be able to access the EMIR and LEI Information page to change your EMIR election, depending on your original EMIR election. Note that you will only see the EMIR Election Form once upon logging into Account Management; once you make your election, you will not see the form again upon subsequent Account Management logins.

Who is Subject to the EMIR Regulation?

All of our entities’ clients established in the European Union operating non-individual accounts are required to comply with EMIR. In this context, non-individual means any account which is owned by one or two individuals as stated in the account title. Individual accounts in the name of a single person are not subject to EMIR and so will not have access to this page.

The following account structures established in the European Union ARE subject to EMIR:
