  • Net debit caps

  • Debit peak averages

  • Pending transactions

  • Unapproved transactions

End-of-day net funds settlement provides same-day settlement finality, thereby reducing the duration of settlement risk for participants.

Upon the completion of cross endorsement, a final net debit or credit balance is determined for each participant. Debits reflect a participant’s obligation to pay DTC while credits reflect an obligation to pay the participant.

Each participant must have a settling bank that is also a DTC participant with access to the Fedwire system and National Settlement Service (NSS), to act on its behalf when settling with DTC.

DTC further reduces money transfers by netting participant balances at the settling bank level, which allows a settling bank to settle for multiple participants via a single Fedwire instruction rather than settling each individual participant balance.

 

End of Day Settlement (Final Figures)

In this example, we are only using four participants and two settling banks.

03 eod consolidated settlement

  1. DTC posts a net settlement balance to all participants.
  2. DTC posts a net-net settlement balance to settling banks which is the sum of all net settlement balances on behalf of participants for which it settles.
  3. DTC collects the money of $1,200,000 via Fedwire from Settling Bank LMN and disburses it to Settling Bank QRS.

Each participant must choose a settling bank that is also a DTC participant with access to the Fedwire system and NSS (National Settlement Service) to act on its behalf when settling with DTC. DTC further reduces money transfers by netting participant balances at the settling bank level, which allows a settling bank to settle for multiple participants via a single Fedwire instruction rather than settling each individual participant balance.

Settling banks, acting on behalf of participants, acknowledge or refuse to settle participant balances. Upon acknowledgement from all settling banks, DTC collects and disburses settling bank balances through the Federal Reserve’s NSS, which directly posts debits and credits to settling bank accounts.
