OpenFIGI Symbology

Published in Reference Data

Open Symbology is an open data standard, defined by the financial industry, to provide a solution to consistently identify financial instruments, regardless of asset class, or function being performed. Symbology refers to more than a code – it is the methodology and system for defining how data is related, and how that information is conveyed. Open refers to being an open data standard. FIGI is the first and only open data standard for identification of financial instruments. Open data is born from the core principles of the open source movement – that a piece of data is open if anyone is free to use, reuse, and redistribute it — subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and/or share-alike.

Equity instruments are allocated a FIGI at the Composite and Trading Venue level, with the exception of open-end funds and private companies. Share Class Level assignment is allocated for all equity instruments, except for Warrants. Each instrument (Equities, Funds and Warrants), active and inactive, is allocated a FIGI.
