ISIN.net assists companies with obtaining an ISIN number from SEDOL, or a international securities identification number.
SEDOL stands for Stock Exchange Daily Official List, a list of security identifiers used in the United Kingdom and Ireland for clearing purposes. SEDOLs serve as the National Securities Identifying Number for all securities issued in the United Kingdom and are therefore part of the security’s ISIN as well. The SEDOL Masterfile (SMF) provides reference data on millions of global multi-asset securities each uniquely identified at the market level using a universal SEDOL ISIN code.
For British and Irish securities, SEDOLs are converted to ISINs by padding the front with two zeros, then adding the country code on the front and the ISIN check digit at the end.
If your company is seeking an ISIN number from SEDOL and would like to ensure that the proper ISIN code is allocated t your securities, ISIN.net can help.
