Sizing the MiFID II LEI Wave
How many LEIs have been issued due to MiFID II? Has LEI issuance crested, and if so, when? Did many wait until the end of the year to apply for an LEI? Is MiFID II-related LEI issuance still occurring? At LEI Smart we’re naturally interested in these questions. That interest was further piqued by ESMA’s last-minute delay to some of MiFID II’s LEI related requirements. We’ve analyzed LEI issuance data to come up with answers to these questions.
