Expression
(?<Sedol>[B-Db-dF-Hf-hJ-Nj-nP-Tp-tV-Xv-xYyZz\d]{6}\d)
Description
This regular expression accepts SEDOL (Stock Exchange Daily Official List number, a code used by the London Stock Exchange to identify foreign stocks). To be more exact - it accepts POTENTIAL SEDOL's, since the last, 7th digit of a sedol is a kind of check-sum digit and this reg-ex doesn’t check’s its correctness. Also, despite following to the formal SEDOL definition - its first character should be a consonant character – there are actual sedol’s with the first character, which is a number (e.g. 0067340 for BAA) and they are accepted by this reg-ex.
