Javier Jara, DCV’s Commercial and New Businesses Manager and Vice chairman of ACSDA
LAST FRIDAY, A MEETING WAS HELD TO SHARE OPINIONS ON MARKET PRACTICES AND ON CRITERIA THAT IS BEING USED BY THEIR ORGANIZATIONS FOR THE POSSIBLE RETURN TO WORK IN OFFICES..
More than 20 participants from the securities depositories associated with ACSDA (Americas’ Central Securities Depositories Association) attended the second video conference meeting. Among the representative countries Mexico, Panama, Brazil, Paraguay, Peru, Argentina, and Chile were found.
Javier Jara, DCV’s Commercial and New Businesses Manager and Vice Chairman of ACSDA, shared the measures that DCV is considering implementing in the event of deciding to return to face-to-face work. In this regard, it has been established that in order for DCV and DCV Registros to resume face-to-face work a low risk of contagion for all workers must be guaranteed. Safe space, training in security issues and monitoring of measures will be the pillars of the strategy. Distancing in the spaces, reduction of the density of people in offices, continuing with telework, signage, hygienic habits, entrance procedures to offices, taking of temperature, use of masks, strengthening of internal communication channels, are some examples of the measures studied.
“The main thing is taking care of our own workers and providing continuity to the proper functioning of the financial market,” said Jara.
Each country had time to address issues related to the current contingency in their markets. The common challenge for ACSDA countries is the return to office work, safeguarding security conditions and business continuity.
