GLEIF Annual Report



In August 2021, the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) published its annual report, including the audited financial statements for the financial year that ended 31 December 2020. It highlights the status of GLEIF’s operations, financial condition and key developments in 2020.

With this report, GLEIF demonstrates the inclusion of a Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) within digital financial documentation. In partnership with XBRL International and Workiva, GLEIF has published its 2020 annual report in human and machine-readable Inline XBRL and HTML format, with GLEIF’s LEI embedded into the financial information. It constitutes the second official business report globally, which automatically links the filing entity to its verified LEI reference data held within the Global LEI Index. GLEIF’s LEI is embedded within the digital certificates of GLEIF’s signing officers. This allows the signatory role to be linked to the organization to verify that the filed document and the signatories represent the same organization to add trust in the origin and the correctness of the report.

The GLEIF 2020 annual report is also available as PDF.
