Following in the mandate of the Special Purpose Fund all institutions that do training through Strate receive a 50% rebate on all training seminars, similarly each individual who writes a Strate exam receives a 50% rebate. (In 2016 a total of +- R120 000 was given back to the market for training from this fund.)

An Exciting 2017 - Debt Instrument System (DIS)

Strate is planning to revamp the bond clearing and settlement system with new advanced technology that will take the entire market forward using global best practice and standards.

Strate’s bond market clients will soon enjoy using one of the best and most-used CSD technologies globally, the TCS BaNCS Market Infrastructure (MI). It will enable the move from older technology ISO15022 standards to ISO20022 standards.

Due to the fact that this is a significant change for the market, Strate Academy will be conducting training sessions during Q1 & Q2 2017 which will provide more in depth knowledge of the market changes and new Operational Timelines.
