GLEIF: January’s monthly Global LEI Data Quality Report now available

The GLEIF issues monthly data quality reports to demonstrate the level of data quality achieved overall, as well as for each individual LEI Issuer (LOU – Local Operating Unit).

We believe in transparency around data quality:

  • Data quality stats are included in the LEI Stats.
  • RapidLEI’s GLEIF report is republished every month on the LEI Data Quality page (included below).
  • See all LOU reports at the GLEIF website.

GLEIF & SWIFT: January’s BIC-to-LEI Relationship File now available

For the past three years, a monthly BIC-to-LEI relationship file has been published. The Business Identifier Code (BIC) to LEI relationship file is built upon a mapping process established by SWIFT & certified by the GLEIF. It allows gathering, aggregating & reconciling counterparty information across these parallel identity platforms.

Find the file from January (and previous months) on the GLEIF website.
