      (a) an offence under the SFA, or
      (b) an offence involving fraud or dishonesty, whether in or out of Singapore, or
      (c) an offence relating to director's duties; or
      (d) an offence under any relevant law or regulation which governs the Clearing Member's other business activities.

    • 11.12.2

      If CDP is of the opinion that:—

      (1) a Clearing Member has, or may have, insufficient capital for the conduct of its business, or
      (2) a review should be carried out in respect of a Clearing Member's management policies or business conduct in the interests of the Clearing Member, CDP, other Clearing Members or the investing public,

      CDP may do any or all of the following:—

      (1) require the Clearing Member to operate its business or in the case of a Bank Clearing Member, its business governed by this Clearing Rules, subject to such restrictions or conditions as CDP decides.
      (2) suspend the Clearing Member for a period CDP decides. The suspension shall be announced to all Clearing Members. During the suspension, the Clearing Member:—
      (a) shall not clear new transactions without the approval of CDP.
      (b) remains liable to complete all contracts outstanding at the time of suspension. However, it shall not deliver any securities or settle any transaction without the approval of CDP.
      (3) require any director or in the case of a Bank Clearing Member, any director or person in a senior management position who is responsible for its business governed by this Clearing Rules, to step down from day-to-day conduct of the business affairs of the Clearing Member; and
      (4) appoint a Manager to manage the business of the Clearing Member or in the case of a Bank Clearing Member, its business governed by this Clearing Rules. CDP shall fix the remuneration of the Manager, which shall be paid by the Clearing Member. The Clearing Member is solely responsible for the Manager's acts and defaults. The Manager shall carry out directions given by CDP in relation to the business of the Clearing Member, including carrying on the business of the Clearing Member in accordance with instructions.
