Debt management has become increasingly complex. Nowadays, it includes factors such as capital market borrowing, hedging and derivatives, contingent liabilities, and IT developments such as mobile-, web-based- and cloud-technologies. Debt managers therefore need a modern and comprehensive system that allows to consolidate, store and analyse debt data in a secure manner. DMFAS is such a system. It was a co-founded by SECO in the 1980s. Since then, the system has evolved to become the world's most popular debt management system, currently used by 85 institutions in 57 countries.


Improving debt management capacity in SECO partner countries Azerbaijan, Egypt, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. This is expected to improve debt management efficiency and sustainability and increase debt transparency in the four target countries.
