What is a Central Securities Depository?

And Why Did BNY Mellon Create One?

August 2014

As the winds of change blow through the financial markets, our clients face new challenges and seek alternative ways to navigate the evolving financial landscape. Keeping with its tradition of developing innovative solutions, BNY Mellon, backed by its investment services experience, expertise and range of capabilities, moved into the realm of regulated financial market infrastructure by creating BNY Mellon Central Securities Depository (the BNY Mellon CSD).

As a regulated financial market infrastructure, BNY Mellon CSD gives participants a structured environment for issuing, settling and safekeeping their securities, thus helping them weather the winds of change.

And in doing so, BNY Mellon is redefining its role as a provider of investment services.
