LEI Requirements for AIM Companies – Have you registered?

6 November, 2017
by: Cripps Pemberton Greenish

The deadline for all AIM companies with securities admitted to trading to register for their Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) code is 30 November 2017. This is in order to ensure compliance with the obligations under the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) and the Market Abuse Regulations.


The LEI code is a unique 20-digit code which connects to key reference information that enables clear and unique identification of legal entities participating in financial transactions.

Further information about the LEI code requirements and how to register can be found on the London Stock Exchange notice board here.
