These guidelines enable greater transparency and security for all individuals and companies trading in securities. However, it also means that trade is possible only if these individuals or companies present a valid LEI, i.e. a legal entity identifier. This applies not only to banks or brokers, but also to companies that hold securities as part of their corporate assets. Companies include legal entities (Limited, Inc., etc.) as well as freelancers and self-employed individuals.
What Is The Function Of LEI?
LEIs uniquely represent the legal or commercially active natural individual within the financial system worldwide. Once issued, the legal entity number can be used to legitimize “legal entity” in financial transactions or usage matters.
Securities trading companies should report the relevant LEI number to the National Supervisory Authority whenever there is a trade. As such, LEI acts as a unique identifier and mechanism for preventing anonymous trade.

An LEI code is usually valid for one year. To continue using the code, it must be renewed through the application form. It can be found on the same online portal; The only difference this time is choosing the “Edit and Renew” option, not the “Register” option. Again, any change to this section would require the authorized person to do so. In the form, after entering the LEI code, all the details appear automatically. Any changes that need to be made will be made. The “LEI Renewal” checkbox must be marked correctly and then the same process of form completion, payment and document submission will be followed. Upon successful submission of all of the above, the LEI code is renewed, and confirmation is received.
