Summary of the work for 2021

1. -  DCV Internal Control Environment Assessment

Its purpose is to analyze the internal control environment to verify and assess the controls of the different processes and support systems to the DCV business from July 2020 to June 2021.

The documentation received was reviewed, and 12 processes were identified, including 31 subprocesses and 198 key controls that mitigate the risks defined by the Surveillance Committee. Next, tests were conducted to verify those controls' design, implementation, and operational effectiveness.

According to work conducted by the external auditors for each one of the areas assessed, they concluded that the control environment is sufficient and adequate to mitigate the relevant risks for the DCV Surveillance Committee, based on the controls assessment indicated in the scope (organizational, operational, and technological).

2.- Certificates confirmation and cash count process

The objective is to conduct quarterly cash counts according to the procedures previously established by the Surveillance Committee, to meet the requirements of article 35 of law 18876, which consists of verifying the accuracy and matching depositor's accounts, and also verifying and assessing the certificate's cash count process safe kept by Depósito Central de Valores S.A.

As a result of the cash counts completed, there were not any observations to report, except for three depositors that disagreed with some fixed income Instruments and some differences in corporate bonds, with a cutoff date of September 24, 2021, which will be verified in the cash count cutoff at December 2021. In the follow-up meeting held on February 2022 with the auditors, they indicated that these situations were clarified in the process of December that has not concluded yet.

3.- Analysis and surveying of inherent risks of the processes in the new DCV computer platform

The objective was to validate the identification and description of the processes associated with the new Core Platform, verify the identification of risks and their classification, assess the methodology applied to the preparation, design, and development of risk matrices, and assess the design of controls.

As a result of the review, analysis, and survey of the inherent risks of the new DCV Evolution Platform processes, we can conclude that those risks defined according to the scope have been surveyed correctly, are consistent, and match DCV's risk methodology.

According to the consultants, the inherent risks surveyed have been evaluated correctly. DCV has a robust risk management model and methodology based on an integrated vision and a strategy to monitor the operation's evolution based on the organization's risk criteria and strategic objectives.

During the session, the assembly ratified the positions of the members of the Committee as follows:

  • Hugo de la Carrera P. (presidente),
  • Oscar Mehech C. (vicepresidente),
  • Juan Vásquez L. (secretario),
  • Américo Becerra M.,
