Settlement risk

Settlement risk

The risk that one party will deliver and the counterparty will not be able to pay and vice versa.

Settlement Risk

The risk that a trade will not settle. For example, a buyer may not receive delivery of the securities he/she bought by the settlement date, or the seller may not receive payment. This may occur because of the negligence or deliberate withholding by one party or the other. If a party does not receive the securities or payment, he/she is not obligated fulfill his/her end of the bargain until delivery or payment is made, but this can render him/her unable to conduct other activities that would advance his/her investment goals.
