Reducing transfers of funds between subsidiaries or separate companies to a net amount.


Netting is a process the National Securities Clearing Corporation (NSCC) uses to streamline securities transactions.

To net, the NSCC compares all the buy and sell orders for each individual security and matches purchases by clients of one brokerage firm with corresponding sales by other clients of the firm.

Those orders can be finalized internally by adjusting the firm's books to reflect changes in ownership.

The small percentage of trades that aren't netted require firms with net short positions, whose clients sold more than they purchased, to deliver the required securities to the NSCC, or more precisely have them debited from their Depository Trust Corporation (DTC) custodial account for delivery to the NSCC.

The NSCC credits those shares to the firms with a net long position, whose clients purchased more shares than they sold.

In the final step, the DTC nets the total costs of buying and selling throughout the trading day to limit the amount of money that must be exchanged among firms. Firms with a net debit wire payment to the DTC, and firms with a net credit receive funds.
