There are four ways to access the Central Securities Depository.
1. Austraclear National Network Infrastructure
The Austraclear National Network Infrastructure (ANNI) provides a dedicated fully routed network connection with end-to-end TCP/IP connectivity to access the Austraclear system, RITS and RBNZ services.
A dedicated ANNI connection is required for participants with A$1 billion in holdings or who execute more than 100 transactions per day.
2. Web access
Participants can access Austraclear through the internet. ASX recommends a minimum internet connection speed of 128 KB per second.
3. SAFE: ASX Austraclear file export service
The free SAFE service provides a direct link between your systems and Austraclear using SWIFT-based message formats.
Our proprietary software automatically downloads transactions, eliminating manual input and sending files in batch data transfers. SAFE caters for the following Austraclear entry records:
- cash transfer transactions
- fixed income and discount securities
- foreign exchange transactions.
4. Via proxy
Participants can also access the Austraclear System via another participant's connection by appointing the other participant as their proxy. This allows a participant to realise the benefits of direct CSD participation without the operational cost overheads.
To take full advantage of Austraclear’s services, ASX recommends using one of our high-speed connection options, such as the ASX Net fibre-optic network.
