6.2.1

Past version: Effective up to 09 Dec 2018

Subject to Rule 6.2.1A, when a transaction between 2 SGX-ST Trading Members is matched on the Trading System, or is reported to SGX-ST as a reported trade pursuant to the SGX-ST Rules on "Direct Business", or is otherwise accepted for clearing by the CDP in Inter-Broker Settlement, the following occurs:—

(1) Where the 2 SGX-ST Trading Members are both Clearing Members, the transaction shall be novated to CDP and Rules 6.2.2, 6.2.3 and 6.2.4 will apply.
(2) Where 1 of the 2 SGX-ST Trading Members is a Trading only Member, the Clearing Member who has qualified the Trading Member shall, as against the Trading Member, assume the rights, duties and obligations of the counterparty SGX-ST Trading Member to the transaction; i.e. the Clearing Member who has qualified the Trading Member shall become the buyer or seller, as the case may be, to the Trading Member. As against the counterparty SGX-ST Trading Member, the Clearing Member who has qualified the Trading Member shall assume the rights, duties and obligations of the Trading Member and the transaction shall thereupon be novated to CDP and Rules 6.2.2, 6.2.3 and 6.2.4 shall apply. Thus, for example:— A, a Trading Member, contracts to buy 1,000 shares and the contract is matched on the Trading System with B, a Clearing Member. The Clearing Member who has qualified A is C. Immediately upon the matching of the trade on the Trading System, the following occurs:—
(a) A's obligation to pay the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares to B is replaced by A's obligation to pay the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares to C and A's right to receive 1,000 shares from B is replaced by A's right to receive 1,000 shares from C.
(b) B's obligation to deliver 1,000 shares to A is replaced by B's obligation to deliver 1,000 shares to C and B's right to receive the purchase consideration for 1000 shares from A is replaced by B's right to receive the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares from C.
(c) C assumes A's obligation to pay the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares to B and acquires the corresponding right to receive 1,000 shares from B.
Thereafter, the transaction between C and B is novated to CDP so that:—
(d) C's obligation to pay the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares to B is replaced by C's obligation to pay the same to CDP; and the corresponding right of C to receive the 1,000 shares from B is replaced by the right of C to receive the 1,000 shares from CDP; and
(e) B's obligation to deliver 1,000 shares to C is replaced by B's obligation to deliver the same to CDP; and the corresponding right of B to receive the purchase consideration for the 1,000 shares from C is replaced by the right of B to receive the purchase consideration from CDP.
(3) Where the 2 SGX-ST Trading Members are Trading only Members, the Clearing Members who have qualified the Trading Members respectively shall assume the rights, duties and obligations of the Trading Members to each other and as against the Trading Member which they have respectively qualified, they shall assume the rights, duties and obligations of the counterparty SGX-ST Trading Member to the transaction. Thereafter the transaction shall be novated to CDP and Rules 6.2.2, 6.2.3 and 6.2.4 will apply. Thus, for example:—

A, a Trading only Member, contracts to buy 1,000 shares and the contract is matched on the Trading System with B, a Trading only Member. The Clearing Member who has qualified A is C. The Clearing Member who has qualified B is D. Immediately upon the matching of the trade on the Trading System, the following occurs:—
(a) A's obligation to pay the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares to B is replaced by A's obligation to pay the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares to C and A's right to receive 1,000 shares from B is replaced by A's right to receive 1,000 shares from C.
(b) B's obligation to deliver 1,000 shares to A is replaced by B's obligation to deliver 1,000 shares to D and B's right to receive the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares from A is replaced by B's right to receive the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares from D.
(c) C assumes A's obligation to pay the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares to D and acquires the corresponding right to receive 1,000 shares from D.
(d) D assumes B's obligation to deliver 1,000 shares to C and acquires the corresponding right to receive the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares from C.
Thereafter, the transactions between C and D are novated to CDP so that:—
(e) C's obligation to pay the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares to D is replaced by C's obligation to pay the same to CDP; and the corresponding right of C to receive 1,000 shares from D is replaced by the right of C to receive 1,000 shares from CDP; and
(f) D's obligation to deliver 1,000 shares to C is replaced by D's obligation to deliver the same to CDP; and the corresponding right of D to receive the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares from C is replaced by the right of D to receive the purchase consideration for 1,000 shares from CDP.
