ISO Rebukes ANNA Over Cusip Pricing Policy

Subscribe to our newsletter

The International Standards Organization has issued a letter of rebuke to the Association of National Numbering Agencies (ANNA), suggesting that fees being charged by the Cusip Service Bureau for its numbering database may be out of step with ISO policy. Cusip is operated by Standard & Poor’s under license from the American Bankers Association. Cusip doesn’t publish a price schedule, but is believed to be attempting to charge six-figure numbers for its database of securities identifiers. According to research conducted by A-Team Consulting, Cusip’s pricing is dependent on a variety of parameters, including numbers of securities covered, internal vs. external use of the data, location of storage databases and numbers of users.
