MarketWare now official RapidLEI Registration Agent partner, issuing LEIs under its Certificados.EU brand

London, UK and Lisbon, Portugal – 20 February 2020 – Today RapidLEI, the number one issuer of new LEIs outside the US, announces a partnership with Portuguese digital solutions provider, MarketWare. The partnership enables MarketWare to issue Legal Entity Identifiers (LEIs) to its clients across Portugal and Spain, as an integral offering in its Certificados.EU service.

LEIs are 20-character organisation identifiers, endorsed by the G20 and aimed at increasing transparency in financial transactions. RapidLEI’s pioneering automated LEI issuance process sees it reduced from a few days to a few minutes. RapidLEI’s API also enables new and innovative use cases of LEIs to help prevent fraud, create B2B efficiencies and to enable faster and lower cost KYC, leading to its recent launch of the LEI Marketplace.

MarketWare is a trusted third party for its many customers in Portugal and Spain, impartially evaluating digital security, performance and certification products. Portugal currently accounts for just 0.5%* (around 7000) of LEIs issued worldwide, yet Portugal is home to an estimated 360,000 companies (Instituto Nacional de Estatistica). The opportunity for MarketWare to provide LEIs – which are mandated by certain regulations like MiFID II, MiFIR & EMIR – to institutions conducting financial transactions in Portugal alone is huge.

Chris Hudson, Director of Channel Sales at RapidLEI, said, “RapidLEI’s growth has been incredible over the past year and a half since its launch, largely owing to its wide global partner-base each with local expertise in the LEI market. MarketWare will be a key ally in Portugal, sharing and promoting our belief in the potential of LEIs to radically reform trust in financial transactions.”

Sílvia Domingues, Commercial Director at MarketWare, said, “there is a clear opportunity for us to provide LEIs to our customer base and the large number of companies trading in Portugal, and RapidLEI were the obvious choice of partner when considering its competitive pricing and same-day issuance.”
