About the Anna Service Bureau
The ASB was developed in partnership with CUSIP Global Services and SIX Financial Information Ltd., which continue to serve as the operators of the ASB. The ASB is governed and supported by the ANNA Service Bureau Technical Committee, which is comprised of members elected by the membership body and appointees by the ANNA board and the operators.

The work of the ASB reflects ANNA's ongoing commitment to the progress of straight-through processing (STP) in financial markets, improving timeliness, accuracy and standardization of identification of financial instruments, while fostering equitable distribution of this information.

  • Fully supported, robust ISIN products and services available via multiple media (database and web query tools) and frequencies (including daily)
  • Efficient worldwide support of data quality and service
  • Centralized administration
