Asset Manager LEI Reporting

Asset Manager LEI Reporting


Status: Best Practice Finalised, Last Updated: 28/09/2021

In cases where an Asset Manager is acting as an agent in a securities lending transaction, how should the LEI of the Asset Manager be reported given there is no specific field for reporting?

Best Practice:
In correspondence via ESMA's Q&A portal, ISLA raised this question and received the following response from ESMA.

'Whenever an investment manager acts as an agent lender, it should be identified in the field "Agent lender" with its LEI. In case the investment manger uses an entity to perform or undertake the agent lending activity, then that entity should be identified in the agent lender field. The identification of an entity should take into account the agreement between the entities.' (SFTR-443)
