1. What role does CDC play in Pakistan Capital Market?
CDC, as the sole securities depository of Pakistan, serves as the core infrastructure institution of our Capital Market. CDC’s foundation was laid in the early 1990s, when a huge increase in trading volumes made physical handling of paper-based shares / certificates a laborious and time consuming task. Introducing scripless form of securities settlement in Pakistan had become a necessity. CDC was thus established to operate a Central Depository System (CDS), which transformed how stock changed hands in Pakistan’s Capital Market by introducing an electronic book entry form for handling and transfer of securities. Currently, CDC is entrusted with maintaining assets worth PKR 4.7 trillion and our depository system is the underlying framework supporting the average daily trading of securities worth millions of rupees on Pakistan Stock Exchange.
