GLEIF and Five ‘First Mover’ LEI Issuers Successfully Conclude a Prototype Exercise to Identify Who Owns Whom in the Global LEI System


  • Date: 2016-12-08

The Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF), the body responsible for ensuring the operational integrity of the Global Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) System, and five ‘first mover’ LEI issuing organizations have successfully concluded a prototype exercise to test the end-to-end process of collecting and validating data on the direct and ultimate parents of legal entities that have an LEI. GLEIF will start publishing parent information in early 2017. Including this information in the publicly available LEI data pool will allow connecting the corporate dots globally with open, standardized and high quality LEI data.
