Tri-Party Custodial Agreement

Tripartite agreements define the different guarantees and contingencies between the three parties in the event of default. After receiving the RQV, the custodian checks the existing balance of the separate account, looks in the long pledge box to see the available securities and determine which securities can be mortgaged in the “long box” of that agreement before calculating the amount of the guarantee to be carried forward to reach the required balance. In particular, tripartite mortgage contracts become necessary when money is lent for a property that has not yet been built or improved. Agreements resolve potentially conflicting claims about the property if the borrower – usually the future owner – breaks down, or may even die during construction work. A tripartite agreement is a transaction between three separate parties. In the mortgage sector, during the construction phase of a new residential or residential complex, there is often a tripartite or tripartite agreement to guarantee bridge credits for the construction itself. In this case, the loan agreement concerns the buyer, the lender and the owner. Notwithstanding the contrary provisions of this Agreement, PFPC Trust, after receiving oral instructions or written instructions (which indicate that it is a transaction through a tripartite repurchase agreement), will provide cash and/or other assets in a portfolio to a tri party administrator who may be made without simultaneously receiving cash or other assets by PFPC Trust. In some cases, tripartite agreements may cover the owner of the land, the architect or architect and the contractor. These agreements are in essence “not a fault” of agreements in which all parties agree to correct their errors or negligences and not to make other parties liable for unfaithful omissions or errors.

To avoid errors and delays, they often contain a detailed quality plan and determine when and where regular meetings will take place between the parties. Customers must each hold a “long check” of potential security with the triparty custodian. After approval of the im-margin calls, each party is obliged to order the custodian of the RQV (guarantee balance required). This runs counter to the traditional management of VMs, in which each party will also grant the guarantees to be pledged before hiring the custodian. Sub-pricing, as defined in a typical tripartite agreement, clarifies the conditions for the transfer of the property if the borrower does not pay his debts or dies. A tripartite construction credit contract generally lists the rights and remedies of the three parties from the perspective of the borrower, lender and contractor. It mentions the construction phases, the final sale price, the date of ownership, and the interest rate and maturity of the loan. It also defines the legal procedure known as sub-rogatory, which determines who, how and when different securities of the property are transferred between the parties. In other words, when companies use a third-party custodian, they are responsible for calculating the amount of additional collateral required, selecting an asset, verifying the eligibility of security, applying discounts, assessing security, optimizing, managing substitutions and ensuring settlement instruction to the custodian. This is the same process that would be used to post titles if the guarantees are not separated. We must not lose sight of the challenge of a whole new process of separation of security with legacy technology – which was probably put in place long before the initial margin exchange obligation – should not be overlooked.

In the event that the case escalates into occ or OCC, in order to detect a defect, the OCC would require: (1) that the competent compensating member relocate an additional margin to cover the margin requirement to the respective position and (2) if the competent countervailing member does not meet such an additional margin requirement, OCC would close the existing position and require the trust deposit of DTC or Tri-Party Custodian Bank, if applicable, in accordance with Rule 1106.
