Any company that engages in financial transactions can be required to file for a 20-character reference code that uniquely identifies a legally distinct entity that engages in financial market activities. This reference code is often referred to as one of the following:
global Legal Entity Identifier (LEI)
Legal Entity Identifier (LEI)
Laws, such as the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, require companies to file for and renew these filings annually.
Any company that engages in financial transactions may need a global LEI. This could include larger companies with their own treasury operations, financial companies, and law firms working with financial firms, including REITs, insurance companies, and banks. These groups need to register, maintain, and renew their entitiesâ€™ global LEIs. We can manage your LEI registration requirements for you.
If your corporation or law firm is tasked with filing and renewing an LEI, you run the risk of lapsed filings around renewal time if you donâ€™t have a solid system in place to manage them. We can register, maintain, and renew your or your clientsâ€™ LEI portfolios, providing you with fully integrated compliance management and simplifying your LEI renewal obligations.
