2,000 applications: Successful launch of EQS LEI MANAGER

DGAP-Media / 11.12.2017 / 10:01

EQS Group, in its first two months since receiving accreditation as issuing authority for Legal Entity Identifiers (LEI), has already issued around 2,000 standardized financial identification numbers worldwide via EQS LEI MANAGER (www.lei-manager.com), the official LEI portal of EQS.

Companies require a LEI in order to comply with all requirements of the EU Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) and the accompanying MiFIR Regulation. Time is running out for companies to receive a LEI: as of January 2018, companies without a LEI will no longer be able to publish voting rights notifications or insider information and proprietary transactions of executives. Banks, fund companies and companies that engage in derivative transactions have required an identification code for several years.

"We expect to receive a large number of applications at year's end. Although the LEI will be mandatory for companies in just three weeks' time, many companies haven't fully prepared for the new EU regulations to take effect. Particularly now, as time runs out for companies to comply, we can help our customers quickly and easily. As a rule, companies applying for a LEI number receive one on the same day," explains Sven Schenkluhn, Head of EQS Group's Data Services business unit. EQS's EUR49 fee is also currently the most attractive initial application fee in Europe.

EQS is one of only three dozen certified LEI issuers worldwide. In its first few weeks as an issuer, EQS received applications from virtually every European country, as well as from Japan, Canada and the United States.

Applying for a LEI at www.lei-manager.com is fast and simple. The EQS Group's Data Services team will also be responsible for the complete hosting, administration and transfer of the LEI to EQS's LEI MANAGER.
