LEI code

We offer our clients a convenient LEI code administrative service.

At the start of 2018, legal entities will be required to have an LEI code in order to perform transactions with notarised securities.

What is an LEI code?

The LEI (Legal Entity Identifier) is a global legal entity identifier, consisting of a 20-digit alphanumeric code.

Why is an LEI code necessary?

Incorporated entities possessing the right to provide investment services are required to use an LEI code when informing regulatory agencies of transactions performed with securities belonging to a client who is a legal entity. In the case that the legal entity client does not have an LEI code, it will not be possible to complete the reporting obligation and, as a result, it will also not be possible to fulfil the legal entity’s transaction orders.

How to apply for an LEI code?

Legal entities may apply for an LEI code from an authorised issuing organisation, the list of which is presented on the GLEIF homepage.

LEI code administrative service

We apply for an LEI code in the client’s name and renew the code each year. LHV Pank does not issue LEI codes, instead using an authorised LEI issuing organisation for the application.
