What is an LEI?

LEIs are unique 20-character alphanumeric codes assigned to legal entities that engage in financial transactions or enter into contracts – so in practice, almost any company, public sector, or third sector organisation.

They are often likened to barcodes for legal entities. Their purpose is to precisely identify parties involved in financial or contractual transactions.

Why Trustify?

Trustify is one of the world’s first issuers of EV SSL certificates using the LEI as part of the certificate’s key generation.
The LEI fits perfectly with Trustify’s mission to Secure Everything. Always.

With LEI, any organisation can now place Secure Identity at the heart of its online presence.

Why do you need a Legal Entity Identifier (LEI)?

A Legal Entity Identifier (or LEI), is a 20-character identifier that identifies distinct legal entities that engage in financial transactions. It is defined by ISO 17442 standard, endorsed by the G20 and is intended to be “the one identity behind every business”.

The LEI is a global standard, designed to identify legal entities involved in financial and other corporate transactions of value.

The standard delivers greater marketplace transparency for market regulators with identity reporting requirements such as MiFID II, MiFIR & EMIR, and is designed to be non-proprietary and freely accessible data.
