SD/MSP Registry

The SD/MSP Registry is a data file which contains a listing of swap dealers and major swap participants along with their respective CFTC registration statuses. All of the information contained in this file, excluding the legal entity identifier (LEI), is also available via individual look-up through NFA's BASIC system. The Registry file simply provides a single, consolidated listing for use by firms, market participants, regulators and service providers who play a role in processing swap transactions. Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants with a CFTC registration status can also view the Registry via the ORS Report Center. The file can be downloaded by clicking on the applicable links below. Here is a brief overview of the Registry:
