ISIN Code

An ISIN code, or international securities identification number, is a 12 digit code consisting of numbers and letters that distinctly identify securities. Stocks and bonds are just two of the most common securities that are often covered by an ISIN Code.

Obtain an ISIN Code

To obtain an ISIN a company or fund must qualify. Without getting into the many rules of an ISIN code, a company must have the proper documentation in order to obtain the ISIN. For instance, if a public company is seeking capital and needs an ISIN code, a public prospectus document is needed. On the other hand, if the company is private and seeking capital, in most cases they will need to have a private offering memorandum written in order to obtain the ISIN code.

Many ask, ‘why get an ISIN code?’ The simple answer is that an ISIN code is the best methodology around for identifying securities. Many stocks and bonds trade on various worldwide exchange, often times under a different ticker symbol or other code on each exchange. The one universal characteristic, however, is the ISIN code. This ISIN code is universally accepted by the majority of the world’s exchanges and financial centers, and is still growing.
