GLEIF published the latest quarterly Global Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) System Business Report, which highlights main trends relevant to the adoption of LEI and provides an in-depth analysis of the LEI data pool. Additionally, GLEIF published the monthly global LEI data quality report, which analyzes the overall data quality in the Global LEI System, also known as GLEIS. The data quality report showed improvement in comprehensiveness criteria and deterioration in accuracy. This report also showed that fewer LEI issuers reached the required data quality (84%). Data quality measures related to the direct and ultimate parent data collection continued to increase.
The quarterly Global LEI System Business Report, which was published in January 2020, analyzes developments observed in the fourth quarter of 2019. At the end of the fourth quarter of 2019, the total LEI population was nearly 1.5 million. Over 60,000 LEIs were issued during this quarter, compared to approximately 41,000 in the previous quarter. This represents a quarterly growth rate of 4.2% as compared to 2.9% in the previous quarter.
The quarterly report also shows that China featured the highest quarterly LEI growth rate at a jurisdiction level (122.5%), followed by Turkey (13.9%), India (10.2%), Mauritius (9.8%), and Estonia (9.1%). Growth in China and India can be primarily attributed to regulatory initiatives mandating the use of LEI. The growth in Turkey is driven by the International Securities Identification Numbers (ISIN)-LEI mapping project, which mandates the use of the LEI among all issuers. In Estonia, growth may be attributed to the country-wide promotion of a digital society campaign and the recent local market activity.
