- Offers Registrar Services for Issues

- IPOs enabled with E-Applications

Central Depository Systems (Pvt.) Ltd. (CDS), a fully owned subsidiary of the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) has recently diversified its service offerings. Globally, the traditional role of depositories is advancing to achieve more customer-centricity, by offering new services and leveraging on technology. Fronted on the same purpose, CDS in Sri Lanka has diversified on different ends over their evolution.

Positioning of CDS in the Sri Lankan Capital Market

CDS was first launched in 1991 to the Sri Lankan capital market with the responsibility of acting as the country’s sole depository for securities listed on the CSE and was established to specialise in the settlement of securities, transactions and the safekeeping of securities on behalf of domestic and international investors. With the numerous contributions, CDS has been positioned as the key infrastructure enabler in the Sri Lankan Capital Market. Currently CDS’s key roles can be identified as the custodian for listed company account holders and as a liquidity provider. The same has endorsed investor confidence in terms of the number of accounts, the quantity in custody and the value of securities held at the depository.

Maintaining a database of this magnitude is a challenging yet a crucial role for the sustainment of the stock exchange. But with an extensive experience of three-decades in serving the capital market and being ranked as the first in the Asia Pacific region and the seventh globally, CDS has placed themselves in a globally renowned disposition. CDS is equipped with the capability and the capacity to serve the industry in its present magnitude and to successfully support its prospective expansion. This is demonstrated by the number of trades cleared and settled without any interruption to date, over the history.

Diversification of CDS service offerings

CDS has expanded their service offerings to include registrar services for issues of companies listing on the CSE which is an advancing integration into their value chain. With this introduction, the newest listing at CSE, Chrissworld Ltd. has received services of CDS as their registrar. CDS also added a new feature of E-IPO applications for Chrissworld IPO, enabling further streamlined IPO processes.

Commenting on the recent additions to its service offerings, CDS Head Nalin Fonseka stated: “Capital Market is driven through secure and convenient solutions, and as a pivotal point in the Sri Lankan Stock Market we have always led with the objective to achieve beyond our core function and evolve as a diversified service provider with stakeholder focus in priority. Over the history of CDS, it has been our constant belief that investor confidence is the key to the market sustainability. The diversification drive was launched with a view to lift the service standard and thereby investor confidence.”

He further explained CDS’s approach to diversification adding that CDS has advanced an extra mile by launching a dedicated unit which could concentrate totally on asset servicing. Operations of this unit would come under the purview of the CDS and the formalisation of the operations was done three years back. Services offered by this unit have multiple benefits to listed companies and investors. This unit has the capability to handle any type of corporate actions. “The best example was the dividend payments. A listed company used digital platforms to pay dividends directly to the account holder’s bank account on the date of payment announced by the listed company,” he added.
