POWERING
GROWTH THROUGH

Fintech

Fintech or Financial Technology is a new technology that seeks to accelerate & automate the delivery & usage of financial services through the integration of technology.

Employing Fintech to provide customers online access to their investment portfolio, account information and transaction data, CDC has revolutionized the Financial Market landscape by introducing novel solutions like CDC Access, Direct Settlement Service, Online Transactions, Roshan Digital Account and the award winning eIPO service.

Driving
Inovation with

regtech

As financial transactions are transformed into system based applications, it is a much bigger challenge to develop a system based on a rule book. While in a Fintech application, efficient processing is the main attribute required, in Regtech it is the ability to restrict the user from any non-compliance of the governing rule, regulation or act.

As the Central Depository System (CDS) is governed under not one or two but many components of Regulatory Framework like CD Act 1997, Securities Act 2017, CDC Regulations, it is perpetually critical for us to embed all applicable compliances into the system while keeping it user friendly and efficient.

industries through
