Highly appreciated among members for its fruitful discussion and value, the Asia Fund Standardization Forum (AFSF) is a working group comprising a consultative group of Asian CSDs. It was established under the ACG (Asia-Pacific Central Securities Depository Group) New Business Initiative Task Force with the aim to advance fund back-office processing by standardizing operations for cross-border fund transactions. Since its launch in November 2015, the AFSF performed a survey on Asia’s fund markets, held a knowledge sharing workshop, prepared an Asia fund market report and networked with regional initiatives. It will also conduct studies according to a 3-year roadmap.
The AFSF aims to drive discussion on fund back-office standardization in order to better promote fund market integration and cross-border transactions in the region.
This year, 'AFSF 2017 Knowledge Sharing Workshop' was hosted by Central Depository Services Limited (CDSL) in Mumbai, India, where AFSF members gathered to exchange experience and lessons regarding fund services across the region.
