As described in the recent article written by Uwe Meyer, Executive Director of the Secretariat on the Board of ANNA, the Association of National Numbering Agencies (ANNA) and the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) have launched a joint initiative to link International Securities Identification Numbers (ISINs) and Legal Entity Identifiers (LEIs) for the benefit of the global financial industry.

The ISIN-to-LEI relationship files are built upon a mapping process established by ANNA that is in the process of being certified by GLEIF. GLEIF’s Certification of Mapping service ensures that organisations that map the LEI to their own identifiers use methodologies and/or processes to do so accurately. The ISIN-to-LEI mapping table is freely available to all without restriction; links to the data are available on the GLEIF website and details of the NNA’s who have opted into the initiative are on the ANNA website, updated as and when new NNAs opt-in to the initiative. There are many benefits to be gained from such mappings as decribed in the article. The link to the full article is here:
