SCCP participants are required to contribute to the Participants’ Fund (the Fund). Amounts are dependent upon the nature and volume of services utilized by the participant. The Fund is designed to provide security for participants’ obligations to SCCP, and is available to protect against the possibility of certain losses and as necessary to meet participant fund requirements of NSCC and/or DTC. SCCP determined that each participant’s contribution was in accordance with the formulas approved by the SCCP Board of Directors. All formulas were applied to all SCCP participants on a uniform non-discriminatory basis.

All required contributions to the Fund must be made in cash and SCCP may allocate any portion of the Fund to satisfy DTCC’s participant fund requirements with respect to SCCP’s Omnibus Clearance and Settlement account. Accordingly, at March 31, 2008, SCCP had $307,000 deposited with DTCC, at March 31, 2007, SCCP had $333,000 deposited with DTCC. SCCP’s excess participant fund cash not used to fund its DTCC participants’ fund requirements is segregated and invested by SCCP in accordance with its rules.

SCCP rebates interest monthly to participants with deposits greater than $50,000 at the average federal funds rate, less one half of a percent. Through March 31, 2008 and 2007, SCCP rebated $3,000 and $9,000, respectively, in interest, to the participants in accordance with the formulas.
