RapidLEI’s automated LEI issuance technology sees SSL247’s management launch new ExpertLEI service
LONDON, UK AND LILLE, FRANCE – 5 March 2020 – Today Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) accredited Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) issuer, RapidLEI, announced a new partnership with ExpertLEI, a newly appointed official RapidLEI Registration Agent (RA).
ExpertLEI was founded in 2019 in France and also has offices in the UK and USA. Its management team previously founded SSL247 – repeatedly recognised as the number one SSL European reseller for Certificate Authorities including DigiCert and Sectigo.
Chris Hudson, Director of Channel Sales at RapidLEI, said, “We’re seeing more and more SSL resellers take advantage of the complementary opportunity that LEIs now present. They are both technologies aimed at increasing trust in digital interactions – a topic that has never been more urgent. ExpertLEI will be a key ally in spreading this message and increasing adoption of our leading LEI issuance process in its business regions.”
RapidLEI – a service from digital identity services company Ubisecure – is experiencing incredible growth since launching in 2018, with GLEIF figures showing it is the fastest growing LEI issuer in the industry throughout 2019. Its success is, in large part, due to its pioneering automated issuance process – drastically decreasing the time it takes to obtain an LEI, from multiple days to mere minutes. It also has the most developed partner program in the LEI ecosystem, which allows partners, like ExpertLEI, to pass these benefits on to their own customers alongside competitive pricing.
The latest GLEIF report reveals that at the end of the fourth quarter of 2019, the total global LEI population was around 1.5 million. Zooming in on France, where ExpertLEI is headquartered, approximately 50k validated LEIs currently exist. The incumbent LEI issuer is Insee (national statistics bureau of France) which, in contrast to RapidLEI’s approach, does not offer automated issuance of LEIs. ExpertLEI see an immediate opportunity to make LEIs more accessible and manageable for French businesses, trusts and funds.
Benjamin Tack, Co-Founder of ExpertLEI, said, “RapidLEI’s technology enables us to ensure our customers can register LEIs in the easiest and quickest way possible. Their technology is also opening up innovative new LEI use cases through RapidLEI’s API, so we look forward to working with our customers and partners to take them to market in the near future.”
ExpertLEI SARL was founded in France in 2019 and was created by a team with more than 30 years of global experience in validating organisations. ExpertLEI bring their considerable experience to making the ordering, management and renewal of LEI as quick, simple and painless as possible. ExpertLEI are officially approved by the GLEIF – the Global Legal Entity Identity Foundation – our own LEI is 894500VM0FRJ8PEWKY15.
ExpertLEI is one of the very few official sources of LEI to offer automated issuance and renewal, unparalleled issuance speed combined with human expertise based in Lille in France, London in the UK and Florida in the US. ExpertLEI’s experience, deep understanding of the LEI process plus bespoke management platform makes us ideally placed to satisfy even the most exigent clients with the world’s largest portfolios of LEIs to understand, manage and maintain.
