    • international standards of IT security

  • Equal possibilities for all market participants to serve their clients

  • Competition on the level of account and issuer operators

    Rationale of the new system 2

    • Centralized response to all to queries sent by state bodies

    • Easiness of regulatory reporting

    • Geographical access (now CDA operates only in Yerevan), which will save time and cost of customers

    • Possibilities for Investment companies and banks to provide full package of services to owners and issuers

    • Possibilities to use the system to enlarge the market e.g. Government Bonds

    • Off course centralization is not good in general, but with proper implementation and regulation we believe we will avoid all disadvantages of centralization.
