What is the meaning of DTC?
The Depository Trust Company (DTC) is one of the world's largest securities depositories. The DTC, which was founded in 1973 and is based in New York City, is organized as a limited purpose trust company and provides safekeeping through electronic record-keeping of securities balances.
What does it mean to be DTC Eligible?
DTC eligibility means that a public company's securities are able to be deposited through DTC. DTC is the largest securities depository in the world and holds over thirty-five trillion dollars' worth of securities on deposit. DTC accepts deposits of securities from its participants only, who are usually clearing firms.
Why is it important to be DTC Eligible:
The Depository Trust Clearing Corporation (“DTCC”) facilitates electronic trading of securities in the U.S. through its central depository system known as the Depository Trust Corporation (DTC). The DTC system allows participating brokerage firms to electronically settle trades with other member firms. This is accomplished by holding securities in “street name,” which means that they are held electronically at the brokerage firm that has deposited the securities into its account with DTC. This eliminates the need for buyers and sellers holding securities in street name to produce physical certificates to settle the trades. The Depository Trust Corporation’s automated clearing and settlement system automatically transfers the “net” trades between participating firms. This allows for a dramatic reduction in the costs associated with trading securities.
The benefits of being DTC Eligible include:
- Increased ease of trading the Company’s securities
- Lower trading costs
- Improved liquidity in the Company’s securities
- Higher valuation
