Primary Dealers System

An electronic system was developed by EGX to operate the Primary Dealers System. Pricing rules follow international standards using the Clean Price. In addition, the yield to maturity, the current yield, the duration and the accrued interest are calculated automatically.

The Primary Dealers System is linked electronically to the primary dealers, custodians and Misr for Central Clearing, Depository and Registry (MCDR), to guarantee the availability of the bonds that are to be sold.

The Primary Dealers System was introduced to activate the bond market and enhance its liquidity, reduce the cost of borrowing for the government and provide the Central Bank with financial tools that would facilitate its intervention in the secondary market via open market operations.

Primary dealers' main functions are to underwrite the initial offering of the government securities in the primary market and to act as market makers in the secondary market.
