Client Collateral Segregation

Overview:

SEBI vide circular SEBI/HO/MRD2_DCAP/CIR/2021/0598 dated Jul 20, 2021 issued guidelines for the client collateral segregation framework in order to further strengthen the mechanism of protection of client collateral from:

  • misappropriation/ misuse by TM/ CM and 
  • default of TM/CM and/or other clients,

In order to provide visibility of client-wise collateral at all levels, viz., TM, CM and Clearing Corporation (CC), a reporting mechanism where by Clearing Members are required to report disaggregated collateral information (segment-wise and asset type wise break-up) of each client on daily basis in the following manner:

  • TM shall report disaggregated information on collaterals up to the level of its clients to the CM.
  • CM shall report disaggregated information on collaterals up to the level of clients of TM and proprietary collaterals of the TMs/CM to the CCs in respect of each segment.
     

Timelines for submission:

  • Clearing Members shall report collateral segregation data on T+1 basis before 23:59:59 hours.
