National Settlement Depository assigns FISNs
December 28, 2017

Russia's National Settlement Depository (NSD) says it has started assigning FISNs (Financial Instrument Short Names) to securities and related financial instruments, acting in compliance with ISO 18774.

ISO 18774 is an international standard which establishes a universal approach to reflecting the short descriptions of financial instruments based on unified rules and format.

FISN is one of the mandatory reporting elements used on trading sites, including European ones, in accordance with the new European law (MiFID II/MiFIR), which is to come into effect on January 3. Pursuant to MiFID II/MiFIR, FISNs of financial instruments which are circulated on the European market shall be added to reports, regardless of the country in which an issuer is registered.

The code visually identifies financial instruments; this identification can be used in all settlement and trading systems.
