Legal Entity Identifier

DNB Bank ASA has the following LEI: 549300GKFG0RYRRQ1414

What is the LEI code?
The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) initiative is designed to create a global reference data system that uniquely identifies every legal entity or structure, in any jurisdiction, that is party to a financial transaction.
 
Endorsed by the G20, the establishment of a Global LEI System (GLEIS) is viewed as critical to improving measurement and monitoring of systemic risk. Global, standardized LEIs will enable regulators and organizations to more effectively measure and manage counterparty exposure while also resolving long standing issues on entity identification across the globe
 
The use of the LEI has been mandated by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) for the reporting purposes under EMIR and MiFID II.
