Thailand: Pending settlement update III


Further to Announcements A17153A18016 and A18023, Clearstream Banking1 informs customers that the Thailand Clearing House (TCH) is shortening the settlement cycle from T+3 to T+2, effective

2 March 2018

The mandatory securities borrowing and lending (SBL) buy-in will change from T+4 (SD+1) to T+3 (SD+1). If the originating defaulted selling broker cannot deliver the shares to TCH in time, cash settlement will be triggered on SD+3 (as from the SD of the originating defaulted selling broker), instead of SD+4, in order to terminate outstanding pending settlement. 

Impact on customers

For positions that are still in pending settlement status, the originating defaulted selling broker has up to SD+3 to deliver the remaining securities. If the pending settlement position does not resolve by SD+3 (that is, originating defaulted selling broker cannot deliver the remaining shares) then a cash settlement will be triggered.
