LEI moving forward
At this week’s GLEIF workshop in San Francisco, a host of experts from around the world gathered to discuss identity in all shapes, ranging from regulatory reporting to commercial applications in cutting-edge consumer platforms.
The focus of the meeting turned on digital identity, and the opportunities that exist to use the LEI as a part of a digital chain of trust as a primary key that underpins trust around the economy. The role that XBRL plays as a way to provide information about performance, compliance and risk within that “ring of trust” featured heavily in the discussions. Like the XBRL community, the LEI community brings together public and private sector experts to create solutions that would be impossible without that collaboration and innovation. Bravo!
