Centrální depozitář cenných papírů, a.s. is a subsidiary of Burza cenných papírů Praha, a.s. (Prague Stock Exchange) and has been involved in the capital market since 1993. It was established in 1993 as Burzovní registr cenných papírů, s.r.o. (Stock Exchange Security Register), and transformed in 1996 to the joint-stock company UNIVYC, a.s. In 2009 UNIVYC, a.s. was granted permission to operate as a Central Depository, pursuant to which it was transformed to Centrální depozitář cenných papírů, a.s.

In July 2010, the Central Securities Depository took over the records of securities maintained by the Securities Centre. Investment instruments kept in the Central Depository are maintained on the accounts of holders or customer accounts; such holders or owners continue to maintain the asset accounts of their clients.

The activity of the Central Depository is regulated by the Czech National Bank.

The company’s core activities include the operation of a settlement system for the settlement of exchange and OTC transactions involving investment instruments, the lending of securities, administration and management of guarantee instruments, custody and administration of investment instruments, and, since 2007, the settlement of electricity trades concluded at Power Exchange Central Europe, a.s. (Prague Energy Exchange, PXE). The Central Depository also maintains the central register of dematerialized securities issued in the Czech Republic and manages the assignment of the ISIN identification code to investment instruments. As regards the settlement of security trades, our company has a dominant position on the capital market.

The Central Securities Depository renders its services to participants such as the Czech Ministry of Finance, the Czech National Bank, banks, security traders and electricity traders.

PRAGUE STOCK EXCHANGE

Prague Stock Exchange is the central bank of the Czech Republic. The main mission and objective of the Czech National Bank is to care about the internal (price) and external (exchange) stability of the currency, and, by implication, to create conditions for lasting economic growth. Hence, the basic prerequisite therefore is the independence of the central bank. The Czech National Bank is a supervisory authority of the financial market in the Czech Republic. The CNB therefore supervises the banking sector, the capital market, the insurance industry, pension funds, credit unions, bureaux-de-change and payment system institutions. The CNB lays down rules safeguarding the stability of the banking sector, the capital market, the insurance industry and the pension scheme industry. It systematically regulates, supervises and, where appropriate, issues penalties for non-compliance with these rules.
