JDCC has established various structures and maintained tight control of risk so that DVP settlement can be conducted securely through the DVP settlement system for NETDs
JDCC applies the following three conditions (the general term we use to refer to these is ‘Transfer Condition) whenever it assumes obligations in relation to individual transactions executed by DVP participants seeking to use of the DVP settlement system for NETDs
JDCC seeks that the Assurance Assets (Margin Value) of each DVP participant go over his net debit. Assurance Assets consist of three elements: (1) Cash deposited with the JDCC by DVP participant(this is referred to as Prticipants Fund); (2) stocks, government bonds and other securities deposited with JDCC by DVP participant(this is referred to as Pledged Securities); and (3) stocks and other securities transferred to the JDCC account by means of the DVP settlement system for NETDs on the settlement day(this is referred to as Securities-to-be-Received) By means of this methodology, even if a DVP participant were to default, all obligations of JDCC can be covered and paid out converting the Assurance Assets of the participant into cash, thus ensuring that payment can always be made.
The JDCC sets an upper limit (this upper limit is referred to as the Net Debit Cap) to the Net Debit that each individual DVP participant may have on the basis on an analysis of actual usage made by the DVP participant over the course of a certain period. The Net Debit Cap controls the maximum amount of exposure to the DVP settlement system for NETDs that is available to the individual DVP participant with the aim of limiting the risk within the boundaries of the Commitment Assets that the JDCC has already provisioned for the purpose of covering risk.
In addition, the JDCC seeks that the transferring DVP participant has securities balance in excess of the volume of securities required for book-entry transfer by means of the DVP settlement system for NETDs.
JDCC ensures that the abovementioned conditions laid down for the execution are enforced for individual transactions undertaken by DVP participants seeking to use the DVP settlement system for NETDs. Only when these conditions have been satisfied, JDCC will assume obligation related to the DVP settlement system for NETDs. Changes of the risk management conditions with the obligation assumption by the JDCC are as follows:
JDCC always maintains Liquidity Resource from Participants Fund and Bank Credit Line, even if DVP participants were to default, it would be able to complete fund settlement of the day up to the specified time with such resources .
JDCC maintains a scale of Liquidity Resource at a level twice as high as that required by the internationally recognized ‘Lamfalussy standards’ for settlement systems conducting netting operations. DVP settlement system for NETDs boasts such an extremely high level of stability that even if the two DVP participants with the largest Net Debit Cap were to default with the maximum Net Debit at the same time, fund settlement would be able to be completed
JDCC monitors DVP Participants on an ongoing basis about the internal system for business operation and financial basis ,etc and thereby controls the impact that any changes to the credit or operational risk profiles of individual DVP participants may have on the DVP settlement system for NETDs.
