(a) A securities intermediary shall comply with an entitlement order if the entitlement
order is originated by the appropriate person, the securities intermediary has had
reasonable opportunity to assure itself that the entitlement order is genuine and
authorized, and the securities intermediary has had reasonable opportunity to comply
with the entitlement order. A securities intermediary satisfies the duty if:
(1) The securities intermediary acts with respect to the duty as agreed upon by the
entitlement holder and the securities intermediary; or
(2) In the absence of agreement, the securities intermediary exercises due care in
accordance with reasonable commercial standards to comply with the entitlement order.
(b) If a securities intermediary transfers a financial asset pursuant to an ineffective
entitlement order, the securities intermediary shall reestablish a security entitlement
in favor of the person entitled to it, and pay or credit any payments or distributions
that the person did not receive as a result of the wrongful transfer. If the securities intermediary does not reestablish a security entitlement, the securities
intermediary is liable to the entitlement holder for damages.
