Benefits for issuers

CHESS makes the management of securities registers easy. It provides a fully integrated way of supporting investors and capital raising exercises.

Seamless access for investors

CHESS supports both name-on-register and nominee holding models, providing seamless access by retail and institutional investors. CHESS is also fully integrated with issuer-sponsored subregisters to allow real-time reporting.

Electronic holding

Securities are fully dematerialised and held electronically, enabling easy reconciliation of the register and removing the need for paper certificates.

More cost-effective administration

Holding statements are sent out on behalf of issuers by ASX, and changes to investors’ personal details are handled centrally.
