What's Driving the Increased Complexity for GMEI?

Shifting requirements

New regulations stemming from Dodd-Frank continue to create change and uncertainty.

Increased auditing

Along with these new regulations come new audits—requiring companies to be more vigilant.

Costly penalties

Missed deadlines, filings or payments can result in lost time and money, governmental penalties and bad public relations.


What is GMEI?

As a result of the Wall Street Consumer Protection Act (also known as Dodd-Frank), any business entity that deals in over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives is now required to obtain and maintain a unique 20-character code known as a Global Market Entity Identifier, or GMEI.
