STUDY OF THE SECURITIES INDUSTRY
MONDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1971
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met at 10:15 a.m., pursuant to notice, in room 2321, Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. John E. Moss (chairman) presiding
Mr. Moss. The subcommittee will be in order. This morning the Subcommittee on Commerce and Finance of the House Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce opens the fourth in its series of hearings in its study of the securities industry.
In our last hearing we focused on problems of accounting, specifically the need for uniform accounting procedures and uniform and more extensive disclosure to customers of broker-dealers' financial condition, as well as the adequacy of audit procedures.
Now we shall turn to another important problem, namely, the pervasive effect of the stock certificate as a primary factor in back office difficulties and an obstacle to the rapid and efficient processing of transactions both on the exchanges and over the counter.
These hearings will focus on the feasibility and desirability of one or more depositories to immobilize stock certificates, the development of a machine-readable certificate and accompanying documents, and the development of a more efficient system for clearance, settlement, delivery, and transfer of securities.
A later hearing, scheduled for October 26 and 27, will consider the possibility of totally eliminating the stock certificate.
As in our prior hearings, we have determined that this hearing will take the form of a panel discussion rather than the usual formal presentation of statements. In this way, the subcommittee hopes, it will be possible to achieve an interchange of views, both between this subcommittee and the panelists and between the panelists themselves. At the outset, each panelist has been asked to present a brief summary of his views. The written statements will, of course, be made a part of the record and the Chair, at this point, requests unanimous consent to include such statements in the record as they are presented.
Is there objection! Hearing none, that will be the order of the committee.
I appreciate the difficulties inherent in the next request, but I ask that you keep your summaries as brief as possible. I hope that 10 minutes will suffice. If there are points left uncovered, you may pick them up at a later stage in our discussion.
