Investor Portfolio Services (IPS)
CDC is leading the drive to help increase the ease of doing business for investors of the Pakistan Capital Market. One such initiative was facilitating investors in opening and maintaining an Investor Portfolio Services (IPS) Account to keep Government Securities with CDC since 2014. Moreover, it facilitates the settlement of government securities traded on the secondary market, such as BATS or with other primary dealers.
Another such initiative which has been launched in 2020 to facilitate Capital Market investors is the facility that assists TREC Holders & their clients to pledge their Government Securities held in CDC IPS account in favor of NCCPL as margin against their equity trades, similar to any other capital market security, without transferring ownership.
