Legal entity identifier code

Who is required to acquire LEI codes?

Legal entities who trade in financial instruments, listed for trade on the market, or trade in derivatives are required to have a LEI code and inform Landsbankinn about the code. Customers who intend to trade only in UCITS and investment funds, such as Landsbréf funds, are not required to have a LEI code. Financial undertakings use LEI codes to report to regulators about transactions in financial instruments.

How do I inform Landsbankinn about a LEI code?

Email the legal entity’s LEI code to Landsbankinn at, including the name of the legal entity and its Icelandic Reg. No.
