ISIN, or system has been around for more than 40 years and is currently becoming the main traditional avenue for securities identification worldwide with over 100 countries adopting ISIN codes. An ISIN code is unique from other types of identifiers, such as ticker symbols, whose main identification marks are not universal. For instance, a ticker symbol in the US may not be the same as in Japan, though the company is the same. However, the ISIN number code transcends such cross border ‘errors’, and indeed all one must have in his/her possession is the ISIN code to bring up a securities’ information.

Many others exclusively use ISIN number codes to identify their securities.
Bonds, Stocks and Financial Instruments, usually have one or more identifier codes, issued by various clearing houses or other agencies. The purpose of these identifiers is to prevent confusion when discussing a particular security, particularly a bond (because a company will usually only have one class of stock, but can have many different bond issues). This is a list of what the various securities codes stand for, who issues them, and what their structure is.
