In this video Stephan Wolf, CEO of the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF), briefly outlines how we enable market participants to make smarter, less costly and more reliable decisions about who to do business with. GLEIF supports the implementation of the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI). We also make available the Global LEI Index. It is the only global online source that provides open, standardized and high quality legal entity reference data. Any interested party can easily access and search the complete LEI data pool. The Global LEI Index brings efficiency, transparency and trust to legal entity identification. GLEIF is on a journey to increase the rate of LEI adoption across financial markets. “This will create additional business benefits for a wider community including large, mid-size and even smaller organizations,” says Stephan Wolf.
