SWIFTRef BIC-LEI Relationship File

SWIFT and GLEIF are collaborating to provide the First Open Source BIC-to-LEI Relationship File

This file provides the BIC and LEI codes of entities that have both identifiers, easing the data reconciliation for these two widely used and recognised legal entity identifiers.

SWIFTRef - SWIFT's global reference data utility - is producing and updating the SWIFTRef BIC-to-LEI Relationship File downloadable from this page. A more basic version of the same file can also be downloaded from the GLEIF's website.

SWIFTRef's dedicated teams of data experts collect and validate information from official issuers and owners of the data for the different SWIFTRef solutions, ensuring accurate, actionable and timely data delivery to its community of Financial Institutions and Corporates.
