About Legal Entity Identifiers

The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) is a 20-character alphanumeric code. It is used to uniquely identifies legal entities participating in financial transactions. The LEI system was initiated as a response to the 2008 financial crisis, and aim to enhance transparency in financial data systems. It is now a requirement for most entities involved in securities trading.


The Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation, established in June 2014, is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting transparency in global financial markets. GLEIF manages the implementation and use of the LEI, which is crucial for improving risk management and efficiency in financial transactions.
