Central Securities Depository (CSD)

What is CSD?

CSD (Central Securities Depository) is another component of APSSS, which replaces the existing manual registry and processing at the Central Bank. The CSD enables the immediate settlement and delivery of securities that are auctioned with electronic evidence of ownership.

The CSD:

  • Calculates and executes automatically interest and coupon payment events;
  • Offers early, partial or total redemption;
  • Allows access to Intraday Liquidity Management facilities;
  • Provides real-time interface with the ATS; and
  • Provides online enquiry facilities.
