Members instruct NSCC to move their expected long allocations from the general CNS “A” subaccount into a fully-paid-for location (the “E” subaccount) and are then permitted to use customer fully-paid-for positions to complete institutional deliveries in DTC.
As Members instruct NSCC to move expected long allocations to the fully-paid-for location, NSCC reclassifies the relevant long allocations as a fully-paid-for long allocation and debits the Member the market value of the relevant securities in the NSCC settlement system. These long allocation reclassifications and corresponding settlement debits are posted intraday by NSCC. The funds associated with the fully-paid-for process are collected via NSCC’s end-of-day settlement process and are held by NSCC and used to ensure the customer fully-paid-for positions can be replaced should the Member become insolvent. Upon completion of a fully-paid-for long allocation, the relevant funds are used to pay for the securities received from CNS via NSCC’s end-of-day settlement process.
Additionally, if the Member replaces the customer fully paid for securities in inventory at DTC prior to the receipt of the CNS long allocation, the Member can move the expected long allocation from the fully-paid-for location (the “E” subaccount) back to the general CNS “A” subaccount. Upon completion, the relevant funds are credited back to the Member through NSCC’s end-of-day settlement process.
