The deposit agreement, in addition to any other terms and considerations not inconsistent with this section, shall contain the following provisions:

(a) Assets to be held as special deposit. Assets deposited by a foreign bank with a depository under the deposit agreement shall be held by the depository as a special deposit free of any lien, charge, right of set-off, credit or preference in connection with any claim of the depository against the foreign bank.

(e) Model certificate. The following or similar certificate shall be executed by a duly authorized officer of the foreign bank where withdrawals are made pursuant to subdivision (1) of subsection (c) of this section:
It is hereby certified that the aggregate of assets remaining on deposit pursuant to the Deposit Agreement after this withdrawal or substitution amounts to $----, valued at the lower of principal amount or market value, and that such amount is at least equal to the amount required to be deposited pursuant to section 36a 428c(a) of the Connecticut General Statutes and Section 36a-428c-4 of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies. The amount required to be maintained on deposit, as calculated pursuant to Section 36a-428c-4 of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies is $---- as of this date.
(f) Depository to furnish monthly statements of all transactions. The depository shall furnish to the foreign bank, at least once in each calendar month, a statement of all transactions in the special deposit account since the closing date of the previous such statement. The statement shall include a listing of the assets on deposit, as of the closing date of the statement. A copy of such statement shall be simultaneously forwarded by the depository to the commissioner.

(h) Responsibility of depository with respect to deposited securities. Except as provided in this subsection, a depository shall hold the securities deposited by a foreign bank under the deposit agreement separate and apart from all other securities and shall permit examination and comparison thereof by duly authorized representatives of the foreign bank or of the commissioner. A depository may utilize a central depository, clearing corporation or book entry system to hold securities deposited pursuant to a deposit agreement, provided the records of the central depository, clearing corporation or book entry system show that the securities are held for the depository as principal, agent or custodian for its customers. The depository shall maintain adequate records to demonstrate the disposition of such book entry deposits.

(i) Depository shall safeguard securities. The depository shall give to the safekeeping, handling and shipping of securities deposited with it by the foreign bank the same degree of care given by such depository to its own securities.

(j) Commissioner shall not pay for services rendered. The commissioner shall not be required to pay for any of the services rendered or any expenses incurred by the depository or the foreign bank under or in connection with this section or the deposit agreement.

(k) Termination of deposit agreement. The foreign bank or the depository may terminate the deposit agreement by giving the other party thereto at least 60 days written notice of such termination, or such shorter notice as the commissioner may approve, provided no termination by the foreign bank shall be effective until (1) another depository has been designated by the foreign bank, (2) such other depository has been approved by the commissioner, (3) a deposit agreement has been executed in conformity with this section, and (4) the depository has released to the foreign bank all the assets on deposit in accordance with written instructions from the foreign bank, approved by the commissioner.

(l) Termination of deposit agreement by action of commissioner. If the conditions provided in subsection (k) of this section are not met within 60 days after notice of termination, or such shorter period as the commissioner may approve, the commissioner may require the depository to release the assets on such terms as the commissioner specifies. The depository, in such case, shall release the assets upon the terms so specified, and the deposit agreement shall terminate upon such release.

Such property or contents shall thereupon be sealed up by such notary public in a package distinctly marked by such notary public with the name of the person in whose name such property or such safe, vault, box, package, parcel or receptacle appears on the books of such foreign bank, and a copy of the inventory of the property therein shall be certified and attached thereto by such notary public. Such package may be kept by the commissioner in such place as the commissioner may determine at the expense and risk of the person in whose name it appears on the books of such foreign bank until delivered to such person or until sold, destroyed or otherwise disposed of as provided in this section.
