Participants can protect fully-paid-for customer securities using the Memo Segregation function. Memo Segregation is similar to the Segregation function, which allows a Participant to protect fully-paid-for customer securities by moving them from a free position to a protected (segregated) position. However, whereas Segregation allows a Participant to move only existing positions, Memo Segregation allows the Participant to create memo-segregated positions within its free positions, thus allowing the Participant to protect anticipated, fully-paid-for customer securities.

Note- See Memo Segregation DO Reason Codes for descriptions of the codes referenced in this section.
