LSE requires all those with securities admitted to trading on AIM to have a Legal Entity Identifier

The London Stock Exchange ("LSE") requires all AIM companies with securities admitted to trading on AIM to have a Legal Entity Identifier (“LEI”) code. This is in order to ensure compliance with the obligations under Markets in Financial Instrument Directive (“MiFID II") and Market Abuse Regulation, which require market operators, such as London Stock Exchange, to collate LEI codes for each issuer with securities admitted to trading.
