… your registrar for Legal Entity Idenfier (LEI) numbers in USA!
An LEI as a legal entity identifier is used to identify companies worldwide. The issuer of LEI-numbers is the GLEIF (Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation) Organization based in Switzerland. It grants accredited LOU (Local Operating Unit) partners and RA (Registration Agents) the license to issue, amend and renew LEI numbers according to a standardized method.
Any organization (GmbH, AG, GbR, Stiftung, eK, …) that buys, sells or issues financial instruments (shares, funds, bonds) is obliged to have a valid LEI number. This also applies to all organizations that only invest money in securities accounts.
