I. Clearing Agency’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The proposed rule change 5 consists of amendments to the R&W Plan to (i) reflect business and product developments, (ii) make certain changes to improve the clarity of the Plan, (iii) Background The R&W Plan was adopted in August 2018 6 and is maintained by DTC for compliance with Rule 17Ad–22(e)(3)(ii) under the Act.7 The R&W Plan sets forth the plan to be used by the Board and DTC management in the event DTC encounters scenarios that could potentially prevent it from being able to provide its critical services as a going concern. The R&W Plan is structured as a roadmap that defines the strategy and identifies the tools available to DTC to either (i) recover, in the event it experiences losses that exceed its prefunded resources (such strategies and tools referred to herein as the ‘‘Recovery Plan’’) or (ii) wind-down its business in a manner designed to permit the continuation of DTC’s critical services in the event that such recovery efforts are not successful (such strategies and tools referred to herein as the ‘‘Wind-down Plan’’).

The R&W Plan also describes the strategy and framework for the orderly wind-down of DTC and the transfer of its business in the event the implementation of the available recovery tools does not successfully return DTC to financial viability. The R&W Plan is managed and developed by DTC’s parent company, the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (‘‘DTCC’’),8 and is managed by the Office of Recovery & Resolution Planning (referred to in the Plan as the ‘‘R&R Team’’) on behalf of DTC, with review and oversight by the DTCC Management Committee and the Board. Proposed Amendments to the R&W Plan The Board, or such committees as may be delegated authority by the Board from time to time pursuant to its charter, is required to review and approve the R&W Plan biennially.9 In connection with the first biennial review of the Plan, DTC is proposing the revisions described in greater detail below. The proposed rule change is designed to update and enhance the clarity of the Plan to ensure it is current in the event it is ever necessary to be implemented. None of the proposed changes modify DTC’s general objectives and approach with respect to its recovery and wind-down strategy as set forth under the current Plan. A. Proposed Changes To Reflect Business or Product Developments 1. Updates to DTCC Business Profile, Intercompany Arrangements, FMI Links and Governance DTC is proposing the following changes to the DTCC Business Profile, Intercompany Arrangements, FMI Links and Governance sections of the Plan based upon business updates that have occurred since the time the Plan was adopted. 8 DTCC operates on a shared service model with respect to DTC and its other affiliated clearing agencies, National Securities Clearing Corporation (‘‘NSCC{ XE ‘‘NSCC’’ }’’) and Fixed Income Clearing Corporation (‘‘FICC’’). Most corporate functions are established and managed on an enterprise-wide basis pursuant to intercompany agreements under which it is generally DTCC that provides relevant services to DTC, NSCC{ XE ‘‘NSCC’’ } and FICC (collectively, the ‘‘Clearing Agencies’’). 9 Supra note 6.
