Asset servicing - Serbia


Income collection

The Serbian Market does not recognise ex-date concept. All entitlements or other rights (for example, voting) are based exclusively on record date settled positions. There are no strict rules on determination of record date (usually set in the past) and pay-date, thus giving the issuer full discretion in determining these dates. The coupon or maturity payment of government debt securities is executed via the CSD, therefore the pay dates are strictly defined and carried out via the CSD.

Payment of proceeds

Interest and redemption payments from issuers will be processed on CBL’s Republic of Serbia Dinar (RSD) cash account opened with Raiffeisen Bank International AG.

Proceeds are calculated based on the positions recorded at the close of business on the record date and paid to the customer's account upon successful receipt and reconciliation of funds. Proceeds will be paid with the value with which they are received. 

Funds under the Available for Cash Loan (ACL) concept, when applicable, are paid with good value.  
The payment method to be applied is reported via MT564 IPAR and Xact Web Portal IPAR. 

For further details on entries qualified as ACL, please refer to the section “5.6 Financing: availability of funds” of the Customer Handbook.
