  • Centralized CSD system

  • Pension system, funded pension reforms

  • Other developements

Centralized CSD systems

  • Full centralization

  • All the services are provided to end customers by one entity-CSD

  • Partial centralization

  • Front office services related to issuers and securities owners are outsourced to specialized entities, i.e. banks and investment companies

  • Armenia goes the second way, partial centralization.

Situation in Armenia, preconditions for change

  • Before 2008 registry keeping was centralized to CDA

  • Now registry keeping is done in three entities, one of which CDA and two investment companies,

  • All other functions are centralized in CDA (C&S of exchange trades, ISIN)

Description of new model

  • All registers will be kept in CDA

  • Investment companies and banks will be account and issuer operators, CDA centralized system members

  • CDA will have its new software (DEPEND)

  • All information will be held at CDA system

  • All transactions will be conducted in CDA system

Rationale of the new system

  • Information system, which will comply with

    • international standards of IT security

    • IT and operational risk management standards

  • Equal possibilities for all market participants to serve their clients

  • Competition on the level of account and issuer operators

  • Centralization of fixed costs

  • Cost effectiveness

  • 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.
