The China Government Depositary and Clearing Corporation Limited (CCDC) is the securities settlement system and central securities depository for China's interbank bond market. A state-owned non-bank financial institution based in Beijing, it offers issuance, registration, custody, settlement, and principal redemption/interest payment agency services for government bonds, financial debentures, corporate bonds and other fixed-income securities, as well as for bond funds and money market funds. It provides first-tier custody services for the whole bond market, with the SD&C acting as sub-custodian for the exchange bond market, and the four big commercial banks acting as sub-custodians for the bank counter market. For the majority of transactions ('A' shares and bonds), the final movement of securities occurs on T and the net cash settles on T+1. For 'B' shares, held by foreign investors, an extended settlement cycle of T+3 allows for post-trade activity across multiple time zones.
