Accelerating into a Digital Future: Simplifying Entity Identification for the Digital Age

  • The Sphinx Club at Almas Temple 1315 K Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20005 United States (map)

Entity identification today is often fragmented, using proprietary and siloed standards. This hinders the fight against financial crime, causes significant burden to data management, Know Your Customer (KYC), or customer onboarding processes, and hampers transformation to a digital environment. An economy where legal entity identification is done in a globally consistent, secure and efficient way brings several benefits – all of which can help firms and governments better prepare for the digital evolution.

Join the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) for their Washington Forum, “Accelerating into a Digital Future: Simplifying Entity Identification for the Digital Age,” on Thursday, October 24, from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. 

At our Washington Forum, organized in collaboration with the Data Foundation, attendees will be able to engage with regulators and technology providers about:

  • Applications of the LEI in blockchain and distributed ledger technology,

  • Leveraging the LEI to prepare for a global digital identity ecosystem,

  • Benefits of wide adoption of the LEI — cost reduction and increased efficiency.

The Forum will be hosted by GLEIF at the Sphinx on K Conference Center from 1:30 to 5:00 p.m. (lunch and registration 12:30-1:30 p.m.), with a reception to follow. 

The Forum is by invitation only and will abide by the Chatham House rule. For more information on this event or registration, please email
