The conclusion of the agreement represents a further step towards the creation of a single central depository in Slovakia operating in line with the requirements of the European legislation and the international standards. This agreement follows the Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation that was co-signed in February 2020 by the shareholders, the Bratislava Stock Exchange and the Slovak Guarantee and Development Bank.

According to NCDCP the migration of the assets is planned on 4th quarter 2021. The exact date of the migration shall be advised at least 5 days prior the transfer of the assets.
