LEI Bond Mapping

FactEntry is an independent provider of bond data and documents, incorporated since 2008, with extensive knowledge of the debt capital markets.

On 3 January 2018, EU Directive ‘MIFID II’ came into force, introducing a new requirement for entities to acquire a Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) number in order to continue to invest and trade in the financial markets from that date onwards.

FactEntry clients benefit from the linking of the entities (which issue bonds) to the security identifiers to facilitate straight-through processing by sourcing all data from Local Operating Units.
