Automated Account Transfer Service (ACATS) can be used to transfer stocks, bonds, cash, mutual funds, mutual funds, options, and other investment products.
The system may be required when an investor wants to transfer his account from Brokerage Company A to Brokerage Company B.
Only NSCC eligible members and Depository Trust Company member banks may use the ACATS system.
Once the customer account information is properly matched and the receiving firm decides to accept the account, it will take approximately three days for the supplying firm to transfer the assets to the new firm. This is called the delivery process.
Some brokerage houses charge their clients an ACAT commission for transfers.
The Blue Ocean is considered (from a marketing point of view) as yet an untapped or uncontested market space.
– The term was coined by Chang Kim and René Mauborgne in Blue Ocean Strategy: How to Create Free Market Space and Eliminate Competition.
The book value of a company is the net difference between the total assets and total liabilities of that company, where the book value reflects the total value of the company’s assets that the company’s shareholders would have received if the company were liquidated.
