For who is LEI code required?

The short answer is that an LEI code is required for any legal entity involved with financial transactions. This includes limited companies, trusts, charities or any other organizations that are recognized as such by law.

The reason behind the requirement is to make the global financial ecosystem as transparent as possible.

When is there no requirement for LEI code?

The standard is that LEI code is required or all legal entities who trade in securities. A company without an LEI code can be denied carrying out transactions in the global financial market. There are however some exceptions to this rule. One of those are made for companies with a capital insurance deposit. The reason for this is that the companies are not the formal owner, since the insurance company owns the investments. However, if the company was to make other transactions in the securities market – an LEI would be required.

LEI codes are also not necessary for trades with unlisted shares or unlisted fund shares. The same goes for trading in listed bonds or corporate certificates. Another rule is that private individuals don’t need to have an LEI code in order to trade in securities, this only goes for companies or other legal entities.

The international organization behind the LEI system is called GLEIF, Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation. They are responsible for the functionality of the system and for monitoring LEI service providers (LOU’s).

The Global LEI Index also lies with GLEIF, and is the database of all existing LEI codes. In the database, you can search for a code and find out who is behind it. The database is also a tool to find out whether a company possesses LEI code or not.

Even though GLEIF is behind the LEI system, there are plenty of other units connected to the system. These are the LEI code service providers, also known as Local Operating Units, LOU. A LOU can also have a number of connected registration agents, such as LEI Register™ who offer the service marketed on this site. All accredited LOU’s are listed at GLEIF.

How LEI codes work

LEI codes are 20 character long alphanumeric codes. All codes are unique and connected to a single company or organization, which makes them work as identification numbers. The LEI code system makes it easy to access information about the companies performing transactions on the financial market and leads to a transparent system.

GLEIF is the organization that issue LEI numbers, but LEI registration can be done through LOU’s or other LEI service providers. A LEI code starts with four digits that identifies which LOU has issued the code. The following two digits are always two zeros, and then follows a unique combination of 12 digits. These digits are representative for the company connected to the LEI code. Finally, the LEI code ends with two control digits.
