About the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI)
The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) number is a 20-digit alphanumeric code. It is an internationally standardized and globally valid identifier for financial market participants. Its purpose is to clearly and unequivocally identify contracting parties (e.g., companies, banks and investment funds). It is used to comply with a variety of financial reporting requirements in Europe, including trading, clearing, settlement, custody, collateral and liquidity management, market data and indices. The Deutsche Bӧrse Group has stated that “the LEI will clearly assist the regulatory authorities in monitoring and analysing threats to the stability of the financial markets and it can also be utilised by counterparties for risk management purposes”.
Explorex meets the requirement for all companies listed on German Stock Exchanges (i.e. Frankfurt Stock Exchange) to have an LEI number by January 3, 2018.
