These certificates are our promise to existing and prospective partners that they can expect even a more intense focus on quality, information security and customer service,” said Hayk Yeganyan, CEO at Armenia Securities Exchange.

Complying with ISO 9001:2015 international quality management standard and ISO 9001:2015 international information security standard reinforces the commitment AMX Armenia Securities Exchange and Central Depository have made to ensure effective quality and information security management while delivering their services including listing, trading, as well as clearing, asset custody and registry keeping, and pension system administration services. This will eventually contribute to the achievement of goals defined in the companies’ strategy for the following three years.

Hayk Yeganyan added, “Whether we are providing cross-border depository services to local and international partners, or we are conducting government bonds auctions, our partners will receive excellent service. They can be confident that we will constantly improve our quality and performance ensuring their data is safe with us.”

The year-long ISO certification required the engagement of the entire AMX team.
