Underwriting Services

bondsUnderwriting is the entry point for depository and book-entry transfer services at The Depository Trust Company (DTC). UW SOURCE is the system that gives you access to Underwriting functions. The Underwriting Central (UWC) application integrates data validation, electronic vaulting, and e-signatures to create a better experience for brokers and issuers. It improves upon UW SOURCE with a more streamlined user interface, fewer operational touch-points, improved data quality, and added transparency into the DTC eligibility life cycle.

The Resources tab at the top of this page includes items related to Underwriting Services in general, but not those specific to the UW SOURCE or Underwriting Central (UWC) applications.

  • For a view of resources pre-filtered to show only those specific to UWC, see the Resources tab at the top of the Underwriting Central (UWC) page (see also Underwriting Services menu).
  • For a view of resources pre-filtered to show only those specific to UW SOURCE, see the Resources tab at the top of the UW SOURCE page (see also Underwriting Services menu). These views can then be filtered to show resources by topic, format (document, video, etc.), and sorted by title, date of publication, etc.
