SEDOL Licensing Product Changes
London Stock Exchange ("LSE"), which owns the rights to SEDOL, has made it mandatory for all customers receiving SEDOL ("SEDOL codes") to have a license with LSE.
To address these new LSE licensing requirements, MSCI will need to make certain changes to security level files delivered directly to those clients that have not confirmed having a SEDOL license by April 1, 2016 to MSCI.
Client announcement is available here
