With the ever growing complexity of the financial markets today, one method of identification that can be trusted is the industry standard APIR Code. APIR Codes remain the same for the life of the business structure or product enabling them to remain identifiable even if their name, status, or ownership changes. APIR Codes avoid the confusion, system errors and administrative complications the proliferation of numbering systems would cause.
APIR Codes are used across the industry by fund managers, research houses, wraps and master funds and software houses to unambiguously identify fund managers and their products. They are also published freely and extensively on websites and portals, including Bloomberg Financial Planning software, Margin Lending firms, Fund Managers and Research Houses.
