Bloomberg Releases New Common Data Format for LEIs

Subscribe to our newsletter

Bloomberg has released the common data format 3.1 (CDF 3.1) for Legal Entity Identifiers (LEIs). The latest CDF published by the Global LEI Foundation includes six entity category data fields that depict the type of legal entity, such as investment fund or government entity, as well as residential government entities, types of fund relationships and corporate events like name or address changes.

These inclusions are designed to increases transparency of legal entity types, relationships and events, enabling firms to better understand their exposure to different types of legal entities, ensure they are meeting KYC requirements, and have access to meta data for onboarding clients. Steve Meizanis, global head of symbology and LEI services at Bloomberg, says: “The additional data being collected around mutual funds, government entities and corporate events allows the LEI to meet the evolving entity identification needs of the industry.”
