About LEI

The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) is a 20-digit, alpha-numeric code, to uniquely identify legally distinct entities that engage in financial transactions.

The range of entities requiring LEI codes is broad and includes the following:

  • Entities listed on an exchange
  • Entities that issue equity, debt or other securities for other capital structures

  • Entities that trade stock or debt, investment vehicles constituted as corporate entities or collective investment agreements (including umbrella funds as well as funds under an umbrella structure, hedge funds, private equity funds, etc.)

  • Financial intermediaries

  • Banks and finance companies

Please note you may be asked by your bank to apply for an LEI code.

  • The global LEI system (GLEIS) is part of the international response by regulatory authorities (including G20 and the Financial Stability Board) to the global financial crisis.
  • The LEI is designed to enable the identification and linking of parties to financial transactions in order to facilitate the management of counterparty risk.

LEIs uniquely identify your business counterparties on a global basis which:

  • improves risk management.
  • increases operational efficiency.

  • enables more accurate calculation of exposures.

  • simplifies regulatory reporting.
