What is the process of depositing securities?

  • Visit a participant with the certificates you want to immobilize.
  • Be sure you have already opened an account or are ready to do so.
  • You will be issued with and assisted to complete a Security Deposit Form.
  • Sign your form with the signature used when buying the shares.
  • Return the form to the participant together with the certificates you have included on the form to be deposited.
  • You will be given a receipt as evidence of your deposit.
  • The participant will forward the form and the certificate to CDS
  • CDS will forward the certificates and forms to the company’s shares registrar for verification.
  • When the registrar confirms the certificates as genuine, the shares will be deposited in your account.
  • Once the shares are in your account you can trade in them.
