CUSIP Service Bureau, Inc. Key Developments

Spot Trading LLC Selects CUSIP Global Services for Options Tracking, Mapping and Cross-Referencing

CUSIP Global Services announced that Spot Trading LLC has selected the CGS Options Service for tracking options contracts and to assist with internal symbology cross-referencing. The CGS Options Service provides CUSIP identifiers and descriptive data for over 500,000 US and Canadian listed equity, ETF, and Index options. To distinguish them from other CUSIPs, the third position is reserved for a C or P, indicating a call or put option. CGS' Options Service includes data elements such as strike price, contract size, and the CUSIP Issuer Description, and is delivered via internet FTP.

CUSIP Global Services Adds Legal Entity Identifier Data to CUSIP Database

CUSIP Global Services announced the addition of Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) data into the CUSIP master and delta database files and the CUSIP Access web portal. The new dataset is designed to facilitate seamless mapping between the standard pre-LEI, currently known in the US market as the CICI (Commodity Futures Trading Commission Interim Compliant Identifiers), to CUSIP and CGS ISIN based issuer and security information. It will help speed the adoption of a standard LEI for use in security master files. The inclusion of the LEI file in the CUSIP database file and web application builds on CUSIP Global Services' recent collaboration with The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) on the assignment of Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Interim Compliant Identifiers (CICIs). Under that agreement, CUSIP Global Services developed an integrated interface with the CICI Utility, offering issuers a streamlined solution to simultaneously apply for both CUSIP numbers and CICIs by using a single interface. This assistance with registration greatly aids issuers by making the adoption and maintenance of legal entity identifiers (LEIs) a seamless part of the new security issuance workflow. Now, by including the LEI data in CUSIP database file and web application, CUSIP Global Services is making this vital reference data available to the marketplace for use in their risk management and security mapping processes. This additional content is free of charge to properly licensed subscribers to CGS's database services.

CUSIP Service Bureau, Inc. Partners with Collaborate with The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation on the Assignment of Commodity Futures Trading Commission Interim Compliant Identifiers

CUSIP Service Bureau, Inc. announced that it will collaborate with The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) on the assignment of Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Interim Compliant Identifiers (CICIs). This collaboration aims to assist market participants who must have legal entity identifiers (LEIs) to meet new regulatory requirements, increase market efficiencies regarding LEI registration, and aid widespread adoption of LEIs. Under this new arrangement, CGS will develop an integrated interface with the CICI Utility, offering issuers a streamlined solution to simultaneously apply for both CUSIP numbers and CICIs by using a single interface. This assistance with registration will greatly aid issuers by making the adoption and maintenance of legal entity identifiers (LEIs) a seamless part of the new security issuance workflow. The new platform will also help insurance companies and their counterparty issuers meet newly issued National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) regulations requiring use of LEIs in transaction and position reporting. The CICI Utility, developed by DTCC in conjunction with SWIFT, is part of a larger global effort to solve a long-standing problem: how to standardize the identification of legal entities that engage in financial transactions, and make entity reference data readily accessible.
