Holders of such securities can publish, free of charge, information on the securities to be pledged on the platform.
      Up to now, the platform has attracted wide attention from various types of financial institutions, including commercial banks, securities companies, trust companies, pawnbrokers, micro-financing companies, and financing guarantee companies. Dozens of them have registered as pledgees and posted fund lending information on the platform. Therefore, this platform enables pledgers to raise funds from diverse sources at a lower cost resulting from competition.
      To ensure truthfulness of the information published on the platform, CSDC carries out ongoing verification on such information, especially on the truthfulness and validity of the securities to be pledged. On the other hand, user privacy is protected on the platform. The platform offers information publishing services, which keeps customer’s identity in confidential, and shields sensitive information as users wish.
      The function of the straight-through processing of pledge registration on the platform is under development.
