What is the CDP?

The Central Depository (Pte) Limited (CDP) is a subsidiary of the Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX). CDP provides depository, clearing, settlement and computerised book-entry services for securities traded on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (SGX-ST).

The CDP provides depository, clearing and book-entry settlement services for the Singapore stock market.

As a depository, CDP provides central nominee services. It is the central party which holds the shares on behalf of investors in CDP securities accounts.

As a clearing house, CDP also clears and settles all transactions in the stock market through its book-entry settlement system. Clearing takes place instantaneously once your trade is executed and we become the central counterparty, so it guarantees the trade for both the buyer and seller. Once CDP receives the details of the matched orders, it settles all trade positions by moving payments and shares to the rightful parties. After which, its book-entry settlement system will reflect all changes in share ownership in the CDP securities accounts concerned.

Q: What other services does CDP offer?
A: The CDP also offers a suite of depository services from account maintenance and custodial services, processing and distribution of entitlements to new issue distribution.

    Dear Sir/Madam, I am a Singapore Permanent Resident living in New Zealand. I have some Singtel shares but my account is registered under my NRIC number. I am in the process of giving up my PR status and would have to surrender my IC. Please inform me if I could identify myself with my UK passport when it comes to selling my shares. I would be most grateful for a quick reply.
    Cheers and thank you.

      The CDP holds your shares not the broker or your trading representative.Thus if you cant find your broker, you can always open a new trading account with another trading house and sell your shares through them.
