CSDI has developed the Comprehensive Information Gathering System (CIGS) that helps address a number of fundamental components in the country's capital market. 

The totally indigenous electronic system is a sophisticated infrastructure which provides a wealth of value-added services to shareholders and – on a broader perspective - to the whole capital market.

CIGS aims to contribute to the principle of transparency in the capital market, since all market players need to register and fill out the relative forms "once and for all". 

Each of the components the newly-launched KYC-based system offers has the potential to make a significant impact alone or as part of a broader plan.
