The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) is a 20-character alphanumeric global identification standard based on ISO standard 17442:2012. It was introduced in response to regulators' requirements to uniquely identify counterparties in a range of financial transactions.

LEIs are issued and maintained by the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF). More information about LEIs and GLEIF can be found at

APIR (LEI code 261700K5E45DJCF5Z735) is an official Registration Agent approved by GLEIF.
