Primary Dealers

 PRIMARY DEALERS

The system of Primary dealers was established in 2013. It is the key instrument that allows the Debt and Liquidity Management Agency (ARDAL) to conduct issuance and distribution of Government securities on behalf of Ministry of Finance. The cooperation between ARDAL and Primary dealers is described in bilateral agreements that include the Right and Duties of Primary Dealers and Rules of ARDAL for trades on primary and secondary market of the Government debt securities.


Primary and Recognized Dealers have rights and duties that are slightly different based on the fact whether the particular dealer has the right and intention to be Primary dealer or his cooperation is only on Recognized dealer level.
