Angolan securities receive international codes

11 September 2018

Angola’s Debt and Securities Exchange (Bodiva) on Monday started issuing International Securities Identification Numbers (ISIN), the institution said in a statement issued on Monday in Luanda.

Bodiva said in the statement the code is an international standard used for the unique identification of financial instruments, including equities, debt instruments and derivative instruments.

The allocation of an ISIN by Bodiva means public debt securities of Angola can be accepted worldwide, opening a channel for external entities interested in Angola to have access to information on securities available for trading in the markets.

The statement said that Bodiva was admitted on 29 June as an associate member of the Association of National Numbering Agencies (ANNA), an international association whose mission is to standardise global securities identification codes.

As the National Numbering Agency in Angola, Bodiva became responsible for assigning identification codes to issues of securities and derivatives, in line with the standards of the international organisation. (macauhub)
