Apply now for LEI

Start here if your organisation requires a Legal Entity Identifier.

The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) is a global identification standard introduced in response to regulators' requirements to identify counterparties in a range of cross border financial transactions.

In November 2017, APIR and the London Stock Exchange announced a partnership to support the issuance and maintenance of LEIs and associated reference data in the Asia Pacific region.

This complements APIR’s position as the industry standard for coding and identification of managed funds, superannuation funds and managed accounts in Australia.
