These tables present statistics on the payments processed through APSSS: transaction volumes and values cleared and settled in the Central Securities Depository (CSD), Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS), Automated Clearing House (ACH) and Cheques.
The CSD enables the immediate settlement and delivery of securities that are auctioned with electronic evidence of ownership.
The RTGS is an electronic form of funds transfer for high-value or time-sensitive payments, where money transfer takes place from one bank to another bank in real time and on an individual order basis.
The ACH is an electronic clearing system in which low-value payments and cheques are exchanged among financial institutions. Cheque processing is a component of the ACH that allows for faster cheque clearing.
