Tell us a bit about LEI Worldwide

LEI Worldwide is an award-winning RegTech that has created an API-tech driven solution called RAMP which centralises the management of Legal Entity Identifiers (LEIs). A homegrown Irish company founded in 2017 and headquartered in Dublin, LEI Worldwide provides a suite of LEI solutions to retail and institutional organisations that require the LEI for regulatory purposes as mandated by over 116 pieces of financial legislation globally.

LEI Worldwide facilitate entity identification in the global financial system, capital markets and private sector. We make it easier for firms to meet their LEI regulatory obligations by providing LEI codes quickly and reducing the risk of having a lapsed or expired LEI.

The refreshed branding and proprietary state-of-the-art tech solution known as RAMP (Registration Agent Management Platform) was released in January 2022 and is trusted by some of the world’s most well-known brands to manage, renew and maintain their LEI codes. RAMP allows multi-national companies who have a generally fragmented approach to LEI management to centralise the management of their entire global LEI portfolio, thus reducing risk and saving time and resources.

Why did you feel Iconic Offices was the right fit for your business?

The Iconic offices have many locations throughout Dublin, and The Garrison is perfectly located on Leeson Street in the heart of the city. The good location combined with the high level of professionalism meant it was high on my list when we were searching for a new HQ. When I visited initially I was shown all of the meeting spaces and expressed my interest straight away. When we got an offer of a space I took it immediately and so far it has served us very well.

Why is an office space important to you?

We are a tech-first company which means our team can work remotely. We have team members in Limerick, Wicklow, Cork, Cavan and Leitrim. COVID has shown us that we can work effectively as a unit without the need to all be in the same room all the time. 

However, I think it is very important for us to have a place that we can call our home, where team members can come to work and meet clients, and essentially serve as our HQ. The office space is very professional, has all the amenities a tech company would possibly need, and has very nice meeting spaces and friendly welcoming staff. The office is somewhere we can bring clients and be confident in the knowledge everything is looked after to the highest possible standards.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

One of the best pieces of advice I have received, and something I have been guilty of in the early days is to not try to do everything yourself and don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. If you can surround yourself with supportive and successful people, you will always be able to figure things out as a team. If you want to go fast go alone, but if you want to go far, go as a team. And besides, doing things as part of a team is much more fun!
