Legal Entity Identifier (LEI)

A Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) is a unique identification code consisting of 20 letters and numbers, registered to one legally distinct entity that engages in certain financial market transactions.  

Mortgage industry participants will need an LEI to comply with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) requirements.  These requirements include assigning a Universal Loan Identifier (ULI) that contains the financial institution’s LEI to each covered mortgage loan at the application stage, beginning in 2018.  For the convenience of the industry, MERSCORP Holdings provides access to resources on this website and has partnered with the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation’s (DTCC) GMEI® utility to provide LEI services. This collaboration combines MERSCORP Holdings’ market expertise and infrastructure with GMEI® utility’s proven capabilities in the LEI space.
