DvP model 2

A securities settlement mechanism that links a securities transfer and a funds transfer in such a way as to ensure that delivery occurs if and only if the corresponding payment occurs. DvP model 2 typically settles securities on a gross basis, with final transfer of securities from the seller to the buyer occurring throughout the processing cycle, but settles funds on a net basis, with final transfer of funds from the buyer to the seller occurring at the end of the processing cycle
