How are investors identified on the SDC systems?

Investors are identified on the SDC systems in one of the following methods:

  • 1.Through the SDC: The investor submits Investor Identification on the Securities Depository Center's Database Form to the SDC to be identified on the SDC electronic systems. The form should include the identification document and the full address.
  • 2.Through the broker or custodian: The investor submits Investor Identification and Account Opening Form through one of them. This form should include the identification document. The Broker or Custodian, in turn, verifies the investor's information and submits the investor's form to the SDC.
