2 Agenda Introduction Clearing House : HKSCC CCASS
Key features, Operations, Access channels CCASS Participant Gateway (PG) Benefits Overview System components, Key features Straight Through Processing C3T and PG Q & A

3 Introduction of Clearing House : HKSCC
HKSCC was incorporated on 5 May 1989 and was recognized as clearing house on 28 May 1992 Merged with SEHK and HKFE, HKSCC became a wholly owned subsidiary of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEx) on 6 Mar 2000 What is CCASS ? Central Clearing And Settlement System It is a system providing book entry settlement for securities in cash market Ordinary shares, preference shares, registered warrants, PAL, unit trusts, funds, debt securities, structured products (e.g. derivative warrants, callable bull/bear contracts and listed equity linked instruments) listed on the Stock Exchange are eligible for admission into CCASS 3

4 CCASS: Key features Centralised
A centralised system for all market intermediaries to transact business Electronic linkage All Participants must be electronically linked with CCASS Electronic Book Entry System Settlement is done on a book-entry basis where no physical movement of certificates and cash is involved Securities and cash are exchanged on a Delivery Versus Payment basis CCASS Participant Seven categories of Participants: Custodian Participants, Direct Clearing Participants, General Clearing Participants, Investor Participants, Clearing Agency Participants, Stock Lender Participants and Stock Pledgee Participants.

5 CCASS Operations 5

6 Access to CCASS CCASS Five channels for Participants to access CCASS:
CCASS Terminals Participant Gateway Service Counter CCASS Phone System CCASS Internet System

7 Access to CCASS - C3T & PG In the CCASS Architecture Upgrade Project, two Communication Channels were developed as part of technology upgrade: CCASS/3 Terminal (C3T) Access to CCASS through a browser-based terminal C3T Functions: Enquire portfolios, movements and transactions; input data, upload files and download reports Participant Gateway (PG) A technical device installed at the Participants’ premises to provide an access point through which Participants’ back office systems can communicate with CCASS on a message basis Adoption of PG is optional to CCASS participants Both C3T Functions and PG Messages were processed by the mainframe in a similar fashion 7

8 Network Connectivity - C3T & PG
C3T and PG are connected to the CCASS Host system via SDNet It uses the TCP/IP protocols with high security protection by means of firewall and intrusion detection systems

9 C3T (Browser based interface)

10 PG (Message based system)

11 Benefits of using PG 1. Straight-through-processing (STP)
Using the PG access mode, CCASS/3 functions are performed by the transmission of standard messages. Transactions input to the PSS can be routed to CCASS/3 directly, without the need to re-input to CCASS via C3T 2. Real-time data feed to CCASS 3. No time constraint for instruction processing 4. Tightening up the internal control without manual intervention 5. Cost effectiveness Most suitable for high volume data exchange without the need to go through the input processing via CCASS/3 11

12 Overview of PG An alternative access channel to CCASS
PG is a Windows 2000-based device installed at the participant’s premises It is designed to support participant back office system (Participant Supplied System or PSS) It facilitates a direct electronic interface between PSS and CCASS with the aim to achieve data straight through processing eventually PG is a message-based gateway. All communications between PSS and PG are done through messages Messages follow the SWIFT ISO15022 as possible. In general, each message sent from and received at PSS can represent a business transaction in CCASS

13 Overview of PG PG acts as a router to route requests and responses between PSS and CCASS Example: Input Settlement Instruction (SI) Send an input message for delivery / receipt of securities either FOP or DVP Return a reply message specifying the SI input no. as a unique reference to the instruction PSS CCASS/3 Input Message Output Message

14 Aim of developing PG To meet international standards in providing open access and connectivity for CCASS Participants to access CCASS It will bring Hong Kong into line with prevailing as well as emerging industry standards and will prepare the Hong Kong market to meet the challenges of increasing globalization of financial markets ISO Securities Messaging Standard (“ISO Standard”) is adopted as the messaging standard which pave the road for Straight Through Processing 14

15 PG: System components There are mainly 3 components in a PG system:
PG Administrator Main Window - It is a front-end GUI interface - A participant can perform login/logout from C/3, check the communication status between PSS and C/3 etc. PG Engine - It serves as a common architecture component in PG that provides the technical services - It allows an integration of different electronic exchange platforms, information providers PG Application Programming Interface (API) - It provides an open system that participants can attach their own applications. 15

16 PG: Key features Message Routing
- route requests and responses between PSS and CCASS Support for concurrent transactions - support multiple transactions sent from PSS concurrently by using PG-API Message encryption and authentication - ensure secured transmission between PSS and C/3 - smart card for its authentication to C/3 - PSS’s authentication to PG via PG-API : PSS ID and Password Asynchronous message processing - distribute CCASS broadcast message and notification to PSS 16

17 Straight through processing - C3T
Terminal input Participants input instructions via C3T and print out CCASS reports in text format STP - Batch File Upload Instead of inputting instruction one at a time by on-line data entry, Participant may use batch file containing a number of instructions and upload to the HKSCC host computer to save effort The batch file is a DOS file created according to a certain format stipulated by HKSCC. After uploading, CCASS will validate and processed the uploaded batch files upon receipt or at scheduled times CCASS/3Terminal 17

18 Straight through processing - C3T
Input control report will be generated to indicate which records are rejected and give a summary of result for each validated batch file Batch upload function is suitable for participant with a high volume of instructions. Subscription to this service is not required. STP - Report Data Download Participant can download the CCASS reports in data file format and process the downloaded report files according to their own internal processing requirements Data file format are available for most of CCASS reports Participants may develop back office system to capture and process the data files to streamline their internal processing and avoid duplicating efforts in manually rekeying instructions into CCASS 18

19 Straight through processing - PG
Participants can connect their own back-office systems (Participant Supplied System, PSS) to CCASS through PG By integrating PSS to PG (via PG-API), participants can design their clearing and settlement back-end process and front-end user interface to meet their business and operational requirement PG is responsible for communicating with PSS but not further down to the other backend system 19

21 Straight through processing - PG
PSS is the main initiator for both online and batch transactions. PSS can initiate business transaction, file upload, report / file download and receive broadcast message & notification All transactions are based on the Request-Response processing, PSS will have to wait for the response from C/3 for every transaction sent. An end-to-end transaction is considered complete once the Txn-Response is received. Transactions input to the PSS can be routed to CCASS/3 directly, without the need to re-input to CCASS via C3T This facilitates straight through processing for improved operational efficiency and reduced risk (1)Txn Request (2)Txn Request (3)Txn Response (4)Txn Response PSS w Initiate ad hoc txn Receive synchronous response PG C/3 Route Txn Request/ Response to corresponding parties Validate Txn Perform update or query Generate Ref Key Format result Notify result 21

22 Asynchronous Message(AM)
CCASS Functions supported by PG All functions supported by CCASS/3 via PG can be categorised into 3 groups PSS C/3 Asynchronous Message(AM) w Receive AM Response to business txn File Upload File Download Business Transaction Initiate business txn Initiate file- upload Initiate request and receive file download Response to file- Distribute AM Distribute file-
