Why LEI is required?
The lack of transparency during the global financial crisis became a problem for financial institutions.
To prevent this from happening again, the G20 established the LEI system.
The primary goal is to simplify, standardize, and facilitate the identification of any legal entity globally.
Who needs an LEI?
Any legal entity engaging in financial transactions or operating in today's global financial ecosystem must have an LEI. It includes:
✔ Financial intermediaries (CSDs)
✔ Banks, investment companies, and lenders
✔ Trade OTC derivatives (except private individuals)
✔ SMSF (Self Managed Superannuation Funds) traders and trustees
✔ Investment Vehicles, mutual funds, hedge funds
✔ Pension schemes
✔ Commodities trading
✔ CFDs (Contract for Differences)
✔ Securities transactions, SFTR reporting
✔ Entities listed on a stock exchange

1. What is an LEI number
The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) is a 20-character alpha-numeric code based on the ISO 17442 standard established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
It is specific to a legal entity, such as a Limited Company, Fund or Trust, or any other organization.
Because multiple entities may have similar or the same name, this code allows each entity to be identified on a global database of entities searchable by code instead of name.
2. LEI code structure
All LEI numbers issued follow the shown structure. Each LEI number, on the other hand, is unique and stores relevant information for each entity in the LEI database.
Following the G20's creation of the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) Code concept, the Financial Stability Board (FSB) established a new monitoring body to oversee its implementation. The foundation is known as the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF).
GLEIF is in charge of accrediting and supervising financial institutions that can issue Legal Entity Identifiers. Only these institutions, known as Local Operating Units (LOUs), are authorized to issue LEIs.
Deaglo has partnered with one such agent to meet all of your LEI-related needs.
