Guide And Cautionary Notes In Applying For/Continuing With An Account With OCBC Securities “Guide”
Many thanks for your interest in opening an account with OCBC Securities. We provide this Guide and Cautionary Notes in the interest of transparency and fair dealing
with you. It is designed to assist you in:
(i) understanding the types of services we offer; and their respective limits; and
(ii) with that understanding, deciding on whether to use, and if so, which of our service or services to use.
While there are common terms governing all of our services as you will note from a study of our general terms for conduct of our businesses - the terms specific to
each service will vary.
Who Are We?
We are the holder of a capital markets services license (“CMS license”) under the Securities and Futures Act of Singapore (the “SFA”) for the carrying out of the
following activities regulated under the SFA:
Dealing in Capital Markets Products:
o Securities
o Collective Investment Schemes
o Exchange-Traded Derivatives Contracts
o Over-The-Counter Derivatives Contracts
o Spot Foreign Exchange Contracts for the Purposes of Leveraged Foreign Exchange Trading
Securities Financing
Providing Custodial Services for Securities
Because we hold a CMS license for the regulated activities set out above, we are also entitled to be, and are, registered as an exempt financial adviser (“EFA”) under
the Financial Advisers Act of Singapore (the “FAA”) for the carrying out of financial advisory services as defined under the FAA or its regulations.
What Services Can We Provide?
We can provide two levels of service:
(i) execution only; and
(ii) execution related advice (“ERA”).
ERA is specifically defined by our regulators as advice or recommendation that we provide (with) no additional payment (made to us) apart from any fee that we may
earn from your actual dealing (i.e. buying/selling) in investment products with or through us. We refer to such advice or recommendation as free advice or
recommendation.
Types of Services for Excluded Investment Product and Specified Investment Products
1. Excluded Investment Products
1.1 What is the service available for Excluded Investment Products?
For dealings in Excluded Investment Products (“EIP”),the only level of service available from us is execution only. Neither we nor any of our representatives will or will
be providing ERA.
We or our representatives may still from time to time comment or give opinions and suggestions or otherwise make statements in relation to EIPs. HOWEVER
as you will also note from a study of our disclaimers in relation to EIPs - you MUST assume and accept ALL such statements as being no more than our respective
expressions of opinions honestly held; or statements of fact honestly believed not to be inaccurate or misleading. This is particularly so for responses off the cuff to
any questions you may ask orally or via electronic communications to us or our representatives. No reliance on such supposed statements, even if given in language
indicating them to be recommendations or advice, should or can be made by you to make any trading or investment decision without you first independently
satisfying yourself of the correctness and suitability of such supposed statements, recommendations or advice.
1.2 What are Excluded Investment Products?
EIPs means any capital markets products that belong to a class of capital markets products listed in the Schedule to the Securities and Futures (Capital Markets
Products) Regulations 2018.
List of EIPs : Shares/Fully Paid Depository Receipts representing shares/Subscription rights pursuant to rights issues/Company warrants/Units in Business Trusts/
Units in Real Estate Investment Trusts/Debentures (other than asset-backed securities & structured notes)/Exchange traded funds that are classified as EIPs.
EIPs
1
are less complex products which are already established in the market and are generally well understood by retail investors. As such we will provide you our
services on a purely execution only dealing services in relation to EIPs.
For our services in relation to EIPs, we therefore assume and materially rely on you being agreeable and willing to generally accept sole responsibility for determining
the merits or suitability of any and all transactions that you may enter into with respect to any and all EIPs. If you are not agreeable and willing, you should and must
not apply for an account for dealing in EIPs with us. If you have such an account you must take steps to close that account.
2. Specified Investment Products
2.1 What is the service available for Specified Investment Products?
For dealings in Specified Investment Products (“SIPs”), both levels of services are (depending on your circumstances and the circumstances of your particular
transacting in SIPs) available options but only if you are not an accredited or expert investor as defined below.
If you are an accredited or expert investor as defined below, our services are (as with EIPs generally) limited to execution only services only.
If you are a natural person and are not an accredited or expert investor as defined below, then you will be regarded as a Retail Client. Please see overleaf under the
heading of “Retail Client ” for the services that we will offer you.
2.2 What are Specified Investment Products?
SIPs are (for the purposes of our dealing services available to you as a CMS license holder) capital markets products that are not EIPs.
SIPs are then further divided into three general types
(a) those which is approved in-principle for listing and quotation on, or listed for quotation or quoted solely on a securities or futures exchange outside of Singapore;
(b) those which is approved in-principle for listing and quotation on, or listed for quotation or quoted on a securities or futures exchange in Singapore; and
(c) those that is not approved in-principle for listing and quotation on, or listed for quotation nor quoted on, any securities or futures exchange.
---------------------------------------------------
1See MAS press release on 28 July 2011 titled MAS Requires Intermediaries to Assess Investment Knowledge and Experience of Retail Customers.
v.June2020 Co.RegNo:196600262R
Retail Client
Depending on whether a Retail Client wishes to deal in listed or unlisted SIPs, he will first need to pass respectively a Customer Account Review (“CAR”) and/or a
Customer Knowledge Assessment (“CKA”) before he may be permitted to begin or continue trading in the relevant SIP.
In such a case you would also have been provided with a Client Investment profile questionnaire (the “CIP”) together with our request that you properly complete
that CIP and return the properly completed CIP to us.
CIP Response
As you had passed the CAR and/or CKA as applicable, you are actually regarded as competent to understand the nature and risks of the SIP products you will be dealing
or continue to deal in. As such, you are also assumed by us to be able to make your own decisions and judgements as to the merits or suitability for you to do any
trade or investment in such SIP products. You therefore need not but may (and we do suggest you seriously consider) properly complete and return to us the CIP.
Where you do not complete and/or return the CIP to us, as notified in the CIP provided to you, you must note, agree and accept as conditions to your being allowed
to trade or continue to trade in the relevant SIPs that:
A. we are in no position to ensure that any free advice or recommendation that may be provided to you by us are specifically suitable for you bearing in mind your
specific financial position, attitude and capacity to take financial risks and financial objective trading in the SIPs that you will be trading in; and therefore.
B. Any and all free advice or recommendation you receive from us will not be based on, nor take into consideration, your specific investment objectives, financial
situation or needs; and
C. You must assess for yourself whether any of our free advice or recommendation as may be provided to you is specifically of merit and appropriate or suitable to
your individual investment objectives, financial situation or particular needs. In particular, the mere fact that our advice or recommendation is to buy or sell or hold
any SIP does not necessarily mean, and must not be taken to mean, that the recommendation is suitable for you and you should therefore either make your own
assessment (if you are able) or (if you cannot properly or reasonably make your own assessment) consult with your own financial adviser before acting on any such
free advice or recommendation. You should do this before you make any decision on the basis of any free advice or recommendation we may provide to you.
Where you properly complete and return the CIP to us, then we will ensure that such free advice or recommendation that may be provided to you by us from time to
time will be reasonably consistent with the information you provide in the CIP with regards to your suitability; but it remains your choice to choose whether you wish
to follow or not. Where you choose not to follow the advice or recommendation we will assume that you have made your own informed determination not to follow
the advice or recommendation and instead are accepting sole responsibility for determining the merits or suitability of any and all transactions that you may enter
into contrary to the advice or recommendation given to you.
Generally Circulating Materials and Resources Warning
Please also note that regardless of whether you properly complete and return the CIP to us, you may be provided or given access to resources or materials that are
intended to be for general circulation. The materials intended for general circulation will have an express notice accompanying the materials to that effect.
Such resources and materials are provided with the sole aim of enabling you to manage and control your own investments and this means also that you need to be
able and willing to accept sole responsibility for ensuring the merits and suitability of any and all investments that you may make with or through us before making
any investment or effecting any transaction with or through us. None of the advice or recommendation appearing in such generally-circulated materials and resources
should be taken by you as intended for you specifically to rely on. They are provided expressly subject to the exemption notice and disclaimer against such effect
accompanying the materials.
Accredited And Expert Investor:
Please be reminded as noted above that, under the FAA, we are expressly exempted from assuming and will not assume (short of an express and formal agreement
otherwise) any suitability obligation or any obligation to provide product information to any person who is either an accredited investor or an expert investor.

OVERSEAS-LISTED INVESTMENT PRODUCTS
RISK WARNING
An overseas-listed investment product* is subject to the laws and regulations of the jurisdiction it is listed in. Before you trade in an overseas-listed investment
product or authorise someone else to trade for you, you should be aware of:
The level of investor protection and safeguards that you are afforded in the relevant foreign jurisdiction as the overseas-listed investment product would operate
under a different regulatory regime.
The differences between the legal systems in the foreign jurisdiction and Singapore that may affect your ability to recover your funds.
The tax implications, currency risks, and additional transaction costs that you may have to incur.
The counterparty and correspondent broker risks that you are exposed to.
The political, economic and social developments that influence the overseas markets you are investing in.
These and other risks may affect the value of your investment. You should not invest in the product if you do not understand or are not comfortable with such risks.
* An “overseas-listed investment product” in this statement refers to a capital markets products that is approved in-principle for listing and quotation only on, or
listed for quotation or quoted only on, one or more overseas exchanges.
1. This statement is provided to you in accordance with paragraph 29D of the Notice on the Sale of Investment Products [SFA04-N12].
2. This statement does not disclose all the risks and other significant aspects of trading in an overseas-listed investment product. You should undertake such
transactions only if you understand and are comfortable with the extent of your exposure to the risks.
3. You should carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your experience, objectives, risk appetite, financial resources and other relevant
circumstances. In considering whether to trade or to authorise someone else to trade for you, you should be aware of the following:
Differences in Regulatory Regimes
a) Overseas markets may be subject to different regulations, and may operate differently from approved exchanges in Singapore. For example, there may be different
rules providing for the safekeeping of securities and monies held by custodian banks or depositories. This may affect the level of safeguards in place to ensure
proper segregation and safekeeping of your investment products or monies held overseas. There is also the risk of your investment products or monies not being
protected if the custodian has credit problems or fails. Overseas markets may also have different periods for clearing and settling transactions. These may affect
the information available to you regarding transaction prices and the time you have to settle your trade on such overseas markets.
b) Overseas markets may be subject to rules which may offer different investor protection as compared to Singapore. Before you start to trade, you should be fully
aware of the types of redress available to you in Singapore and other relevant jurisdictions, if any.
c) Overseas-listed investment products may not be subject to the same disclosure standards that apply to investment products listed for quotation or quoted on an
approved exchange in Singapore. Where disclosure is made, differences in accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards may also affect the quality and
comparability of information provided. It may also be more difficult to locate up-to-date information, and the information published may only be available in a
foreign language.
Differences in legal systems
d) In some countries, legal concepts which are practiced in mature legal systems may not be in place or may have yet to be tested in courts. This would make it more
difficult to predict with a degree of certainty the outcome of judicial proceedings or even the quantum of damages which may be awarded following a successful
claim.
e) The Monetary Authority of Singapore will be unable to compel the enforcement of the rules of the regulatory authorities or markets in other jurisdictions where
your transactions will be effected.
f) The laws of some jurisdictions may prohibit or restrict the repatriation of funds from such jurisdictions including capital, divestment proceeds, profits, dividends
and interest arising from investment in such countries. Therefore, there is no guarantee that the funds you have invested and the funds arising from your
investment will be capable of being remitted.
g) Some jurisdictions may also restrict the amount or type of investment products that foreign investors may trade. This can affect the liquidity and prices of the
overseas-listed investment products that you invest in.
Different costs involved
h) There may be tax implications of investing in an overseas-listed investment product. For example, sale proceeds or the receipt of any dividends and other income
may be subject to tax levies, duties or charges in the foreign country, in Singapore, or in both countries.
i) Your investment return on foreign currency-denominated investment products will be affected by exchange rate fluctuations where there is a need to convert
from the currency of denomination of the investment products to another currency, or may be affected by exchange controls.
j) You may have to pay additional costs such as fees and broker’s commissions for transactions in overseas exchanges. In some jurisdictions, you may also have to pay
a premium to trade certain listed investment products. Therefore, before you begin to trade, you should obtain a clear explanation of all commissions, fees and
other charges for which you will be liable. These charges will affect your net profit (if any) or increase your loss.
Counterparty and correspondent broker risks
k) Transactions on overseas exchanges or overseas markets are generally effected by your Singapore broker through the use of foreign brokers who have trading
and/or clearing rights on those exchanges. All transactions that are executed upon your instructions with such counterparties and correspondent brokers are
dependent on their respective due performance of their obligations. The insolvency or default of such counterparties and correspondent brokers may lead to
positions being liquidated or closed out without your consent and/or may result in difficulties in recovering your monies and assets held overseas.
Political, Economic and Social Developments
l) Overseas markets are influenced by the political, economic and social developments in the foreign jurisdiction, which may be uncertain and may increase the risk
of investing in overseas-listed investment products.
