PTE 99–29 permits DBTCA (formerly known as Banker’s Trust Company) to continue to function as a qualified professional asset manager (QPAM) under PTE 84–14 (49 FR 9494, March 13, 1994). The amendment affects participants and beneficiaries and fiduciaries of employee benefit plans to which DBTCA served as custodian. EFFECTIVE DATE: The amendment is effective as of January 31, 2003. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Allison Padams Lavigne, Office of Exemption Determinations, Employee Benefits Security Administration, US Department of Labor, Washington, DC 20210 at (202) 693–8540. This is not a toll-free number. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 3, 2005, the Department VerDate jul<14>2003 16:18 Nov 08, 2005 Jkt 208001 published a notice of proposed exemption that would amend PTE 99– 29. The amendment was requested in an application filed on behalf of DBTCA. DBTCA is a New York banking, fiduciary, record keeping custodial, brokerage and investment services to corporations, institutions, governments, employee benefit plans, governmental retirement plans, and private investors worldwide, Deutsche Bank, AG indirectly wholly owns DBTCA. The proposed amendment invited interested persons to submit comments to the Department on or before March 21, 2005. On February 17, 2005, the applicant notified the Department that the names and addresses of certain individuals who may be entitled to receive notice of the proposed amendment were contained in records that were destroyed by the events that occurred on September 11, 2001. As a result, the applicant did not notify interested persons within the three-day period specified in the proposed amendment. The applicant requested that the comment period be extended to ensure that interested persons would have a sufficient amount of time in which to provide their comments to the Department. In addition, the applicant stated that it had the names and addresses of custody clients of DBTCA as of December 31, 2002. The applicant believed that this list of clients would reasonably include all parties that would have an interest in the proposed amendment. The Department concurred with the applicant. Accordingly, on March 29, 2005, the applicant sent notice to all custody clients of DBTCA as of December 31, 2002. This notice informed interested persons of their right to comment on the proposed amendment, and informed these persons that comments were due to the Department on or before May 27, 2005. Written Comments The Department received one written comment. No requests for a public hearing were received. The comment was submitted by the applicant who wished to clarify that check ledgers, cancelled checks and class action records that are described in the notice of proposed amendment continue to be the property of the applicant, but such materials can only be effectively searched using State Street’s record keeping systems. In this regard, State Street currently serves as inquiry response and information agent for the applicant, and maintains information on its systems. The applicant relies upon State Street to answer inquiries related to these records. Under the terms of the applicant’s arrangement with State PO 00000 Frm 00107 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Street, State Street may resign from its inquiry response and information retrieval duties on or after April 28, 2007. The applicant represents that in the event of State Street’s resignation, the applicant will locate another agent who will create a similar retrieval system, or re-establish an in-house information retrieval system. Under either arrangement, records will be maintained in accordance with the terms specified under the amendment to PTE 99–29. For further information regarding the comment or other matters discussed herein, interested persons are encouraged to obtain copies of the exemption application file (Exemption Application No. D–11246). The complete application file and all supplemental submissions received by the Department, are available for public inspection in the Public Disclosure Room of the Employee Benefits Security Administration, Room N–1513, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210. Accordingly, after giving full consideration to the entire record, including the written comment received, the Department has decided to adopt the amendment to PTE 99–29.
