BSE to brokers: Submit client funding details

BSE

Leading stock exchange BSE on Tuesday asked stock brokers operating in the cash segment to submit total amount funded to clients during May on the bourse’s electronic filing system by June 8.

As per BSE norms, trading members have to provide information on amount funded as margin obligation on behalf of clients, funding related to settlement obligations for institutional and non-institutional clients, among others.

In a circular, BSE said, “All the trading members who were active during the month of May 2016 are required to upload client funding details for the month of May 2016 through BEFS (BSE Electronic Filing System)”.

It further said, “Client funding option for the month of April 2016 would be enabled in the BEFS from June 1 till June 8, 2016”.

BSE also said trading members who do not fund the clients have an option of submission of undertaking in the BEFS.

“In case a trading member chooses to submit an undertaking, the member is not required to upload nil funding every month and the system will treat the funding as nil till he revokes the undertaking,” BSE said.

“If trading member does funding to the clients subsequently, he would be required to revoke the undertaking through option available in the BEFS and then upload the client funding details,” it added.
