Welcome to our all-new series, “GLEIF Explains”, where members of the team explore how GLEIF provides trusted services and open, reliable data for unique legal entity identification worldwide. In this first episode, our CEO, Stephan Wolf, introduces the data contained in a Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) record.

Data is at the very heart of the LEI, with each individual LEI record containing registered and verified reference data for its corresponding entity. Stephan provides an overview of this data, the different data fields, and how global data consumers can access and leverage this resource via the Global LEI Index, the only open, standardized, and high-quality source of legal entity reference data.
