KDD's Vision is to remain one of the most renowned institutions on the securities market and to ensure the integrity thereof by providing quality and diverse services directly to holders of securities, and efficient technical and operative support to KDD system members and securities issuers.
KDD was founded on 10 January, 1995 as a company providing central securities custody services, clearance and settlement of securities transactions, and maintenance of the central registry of holders of dematerialised securities in the Republic of Slovenia.
KDD's founders and shareholders are banks, stockbroking firms, fund management companies, government funds, issuers and other shareholders. Share capital amounts to EUR 1,084,960.77 and is divided into 520 ordinary registered shares.
KDD has proved its reputation by successful integration into European capital markets and thus contributed significantly to increased efficiency and integration of capital markets. Namely, European Central Bank has proclaimed KDD’s securities settlement systems as fully eligible for use in Eurosystem credit operations. In 2017 KDD successfully connected its infrastructure to uniform European securities settlement platform TARGET2-Securities (T2S). Furthermore, KDD has established links to some prominent (I)CSDs in order to allow efficient and low-risk cross-border securities transfers.
