ANNA Newsletter: February 2022

ANNA Feb 2022 Newsletter

Dear Reader,

On behalf of the ANNA Board and Management team we are pleased to welcome you to our spring newsletter. This edition is particularly poignant, as we celebrate a big milestone, our own 30-year anniversary! 

At the heart of ANNA are the member National Numbering Agencies (NNAs), responsible for ISIN, FISN and CFI assignment and maintenance, who are the local market experts in their jurisdictions. With +82 million ISINs and related information on file, together with NNAs, ANNA is helping to harmonise financial standards. We would like to thank all those who have been part of ANNA over the years, working to reduce the time, cost and risk of cross-border transactions through improving global interoperability using financial standards. We hope you enjoy this special anniversary issue.

Best wishes,
Claudio Garin
Treasurer, ANNA
