International Securities Identification Number

A number that is assigned to almost every stock and registered bond that trades throughout the world. An ISIN facilitates trade and settlement by making each security unique to every other security of the same class. Most countries have independent agencies that assign ISIN numbers to securities traded in their countries. ISIN numbers are recorded in each trade.
