Custody & Safekeeping
Eurivex provides the service of custody, safekeeping and administration of Financial Instruments for the account of Clients including custodianship and related services. Eurivex may provide these under these terms with or through any intermediary broker, agent, clearance system, depository, overseas data processing agent or sub‐custodian or other third party, which may or may not be an associate of Eurivex and may be regulated within or outside the European Union. Eurivex uses skill and care when selecting such agents or third parties and uses only reputedly competent third parties and conducts periodic reviews of such parties. The risk associated with the safekeeping of Financial Instruments deposited with third parties and any relevant acts or omissions of such third parties shall be borne by the Client, notwithstanding that Eurivex shall comply with its obligation to use due skill and care in the selection of such third party as provided above.
In case of insolvency of the third party and depending on the laws of the jurisdiction of such third party, the Client acknowledges and accepts to bear the risk that the relevant assets may be lost.
Neither Eurivex nor any director, officer, employee or agent of Eurivex shall be liable to the Client for any loss caused directly or indirectly by any act or omission or for the insolvency of any such third party subject to its obligation to use due skill and care in the selection of such third party.
Securities deposited with a sub‐custodian, depository or clearing agency/entity shall be held subject to the rules and operating procedures of such party and any applicable laws and regulations whether of a governmental authority or otherwise.
The Client understands that Eurivex may not be able to exercise discretion in the selection or monitoring of a depository/clearing system or in the negotiation of contractual provisions with the same.
Financial Instruments belonging to a Client may be subject to the law of a jurisdiction other than that of a European Economic Area (EEA) country. The laws and practices in different jurisdictions relating to custody, securities or settlement will vary and neither Eurivex nor any sub‐custodian will assume any risk arising out of such laws and practices. The rights of such Clients in relation to these Financial Instruments may differ accordingly.
If foreign legislation prevents or hinders Eurivex or any sub‐custodian from returning assets held for safekeeping abroad, Eurivex shall only be required to provide the Client with a proportional claim to return the assets at the foreign location, provided that such claim exists and is transferable.
Eurivex will not borrow any of the Client’s Financial Instruments or against them for any purpose. Should Eurivex (or any sub‐custodian of Eurivex) at any point engage in securities financing transactions or any form of stock lending practices, Eurivex shall, in good time before the use of the Financial Instruments in question, provide Retail Clients, in a durable medium with clear full and accurate information on the obligations and responsibilities of Eurivex with respect to the use of those Financial Instruments, including the terms for their restitution and the risks involved.
Eurivex maintains with sub‐custodians an account for Eurivex’s own funds and Financial Instruments deposited in a depository (a proprietary account) and an account for Eurivex’s customers’ funds and Financial Instruments deposited in a depository.
To the extent feasible and/or in line with market practice/regulation, third parties through whom Eurivex provides the service of safekeeping and administration of Financial Instruments may maintain the Clients’ Financial Instruments deposited in a depository in an account for all such third parties’ customers (including Eurivex) and shall not mingle their own assets with the Financial Instruments held on behalf of such customers.
Eurivex reserves the right to, and may, use an ‘Omnibus Account’ with third parties to custody and safe keep Clients’ assets. An “omnibus account” is an account opened in the name of a custodian, in this case Eurivex, in which the Financial Instruments and assets of Eurivex’s Clients, are combined and remain undisclosed to the third party.
The Client is WARNED that there are various risks entailed in Financial Instruments being held in Omnibus Accounts, some of which are as follows:
- In the case of any permanent shortfall in the securities held in an omnibus account, the Client could suffer the loss proportionally in accordance with the number of Financial Instruments relative to the remaining Financial Instruments held in the omnibus account, or could suffer a loss on a first‐in first‐out or last‐in first‐out basis or in certain instances may lose any claim it has to the Financial Instruments held in the omnibus account;
- There could be temporary shortfalls caused by operational errors (or otherwise) resulting in the Financial Instruments of the Client being used to satisfy other investors’ instructions during the time of the shortfall;
- Financial Instruments are held by a single sub‐custodian for many investors, some may wish to vote in favour of a particular matter and others may wish to vote against (in such cases there may be a risk that the relevant legal system does not permit a single investor to vote contrarily: part of his vote for and part against); and
- If the relevant legal system does not recognise the omnibus account as a valid form of co‐ownership, there is a risk that the Client will have no property rights at all in relation to his Financial Instruments held in an omnibus account.
The concept of nominee account holders in certain jurisdictions is not recognised either in relation to ownership rights or otherwise and the Client shall bear fully any risks arising out of such lack of recognition.
The Financial Instruments and/or funds of the Client, whether held by a third party or a depository, will be clearly identified in the books of Eurivex and of the third party as being held for the Client by means of differently titled accounts on the books of Eurivex and the third party or by other equivalent measures.
Eurivex performs reconciliations on a regular basis between its internal accounts and records and those of the third‐party custodian(s) and monitors and performs on a daily basis the marked‐to‐market settlement of its Clients’ listed derivatives.
Eurivex and sub‐custodians (or any third party through whom the sub‐custodian is providing the relevant service, including a depository) may have a security interest, lien or right of set‐off in relation to Financial Instruments of the Client held by them.
Where, pursuant to the provision of Services, any Client Financial Instruments come under the possession or control of a third party having any claim against the Client, Eurivex shall not be liable to the Client in any way for the exercise by such third party of any lawful right against the Client’s Financial Instruments for the purpose of satisfying the third party’s claims.
Financial Instruments purchased by Eurivex on behalf of the Client may be registered, at Eurivex’s discretion, in the name of Eurivex, of its nominees or sub‐custodians (or any third party through whom the sub‐custodian is providing the relevant service) to the order of Eurivex for account of the Client and/or in the name of the Client without Eurivex incurring special obligations or responsibilities therefore, but always for the account of and at the risk of the Client.
Eurivex aims to achieve the highest levels of compliance in providing the Client a transparent, professional, discrete and personalized service. Within this context Eurivex takes Client complaints very seriously. Such complaints shall be handled professionally and with full discretion.
