C- There are two types of clearing accounts that a nonclearing broker-dealer may maintain with a clearing broker-dealer. They are fully disclosed accounts and omnibus accounts.
In a fully disclosed account, the clearing broker-dealer will maintain all the records for the customer. The nonclearing firm will introduce the customer's account to the clearing firm, and the clearing firm will execute the orders, send the customer confirmations and statements, and take care of all the other required record keeping.
In an omnibus account, the nonclearing (introducing) firm will maintain all its own records. The clearing firm will only execute orders and clear them. All other details will be handled by the introducing firm.

If the broker or dealer is acting as principal, it must disclose whether it is a market maker in the security.
