GLEIF and Association of National Numbering Agencies (ANNA) piloted the first daily open-source relationship file that links newly issued International Securities Identification Numbers (ISINs) and Legal Entity Identifiers (LEIs). The daily ISIN-to-LEI relationship files, which are publicly available on the GLEIF website, currently include new ISINs issued by 11 early mover national numbering agencies (NNAs). Information on the participating NNAs is published on the ANNA website. It is expected that other NNAs will join the program going forward. Altogether, there are 116 NNAs responsible for issuing ISINs.
This cooperation between GLEIF and ANNA was announced in September 2018. It was created to improve the transparency of exposure by linking the issuer and issuance of securities. This enables firms to aggregate data, which clearly shows their securities exposure in relation to an individual issuer and its related entities. The ISIN-to-LEI relationship files are built on an ANNA-established mapping process, which is in the process of being certified by GLEIF.
GLEIF’s Certification of Mapping service is a free-of-charge certification process, which ensures that organizations that map the LEI to their own identifiers use state-of-the-art methodologies and/or processes to do so accurately. Each NNA that opts into the ISIN-to-LEI mapping initiative is permitted to—and should—use the certificate that will be issued to ANNA. In the longer term there are plans to enhance the ISIN-to-LEI mapping initiative to also cover legacy ISINs.
