LEI allocation by the FSO
The Federal Statistical Office (LEI-Switzerland) has been an accredited LEI issuing authority for Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein since December 2017. We exclusively manage LEIs of Swiss and Liechtenstein companies as well as of Swiss trusts and funds.
The LEI is a unique and globally valid identifier of legal entities involved in financial transactions. An internationally standardised identification number for financial market participants is intended to improve the quality of financial data and facilitate the assessment of systemic risks.
