What is an LEI?

A Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) is a 20-character identifier that represents a distinct legal entity engaged in financial transactions. Defined by the ISO 17442 standard, its purpose is to be “the one identity behind every business”.

The LEI is a global standard designed to identify legal entities involved in financial transactions and other valued transactions between corporations or legal entities.

Do I need an LEI?

As of the 3rd of January 2018, LEI’s are mandatory for trading entities. The European Union (EU) revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) and accompanying regulation (MiFIR) came into effect on this date and affects trading venues, investment firms and their intermediaries.

With regard to transaction reporting under MiFIR, the European Securities and Markets agency have clarified that investment firms should obtain LEIs on behalf of their clients before providing services which would trigger reporting obligations for transactions made on behalf of a firm’s clients.

  1. Steve

    Super quick! Thank you.

  2. Peter T (verified owner)

    How simple to do once someone explains the way to complete the form for trusts.
    The forms on all the websites refer to companies and half the information does not apply to trusts at all, so is most misleading.
    Really frustrating.

    Best to call and someone (Cristina) will take you through it in a few minutes.
