All participants in the OTC derivatives markets in Canada must obtain an LEI (Legal Entity Identifier) in order to comply with the Reporting Requirements. You will therefore be required to obtain an LEI in order to maintain your trading activities with National Bank.
To obtain your LEI, you must follow three easy steps:
- Visit GMEI Utility website, Bloomberg LEI or others
- Complete the registration process. If you have any questions regarding the registration process, please consult our simplified registration guides: GMEI Utility Registration Guide or Bloomberg registration guide.
- An LEI
will be sent to you by email following your registration.
Please note that generally, the processing time of your LEI request may take five (5) to ten (10) business days through GMEI Utility and two (2) business days through Bloomberg LEI. National Bank of Canada will ask for your LEI and other factual information through the trade facility opening or renewal process.
