Third Party Security Interests

Client assets may be deposited with a third party who may have a security interest, lien or right of set off (together "liens") to the extent required by the applicable law in the jurisdiction where those assets are held, or for any fees arising from the provision of services by that third party. Details of the liens that may be held by third parties are provided below.

Type (a) liens: Assets held with this agent in this market are subject to a security interest which enables third parties such as the agent or CSD to sell our client assets in order to recover debts related to our clients, or provision of custody services to our clients.

Type (b) liens: Assets held with this agent in this market are subject to a security interest which is required by law in the relevant jurisdiction. Such security interests may enable third parties such as the agent or CSD to sell our client assets for debts which are not related to our clients, or provision of custody services to our clients.

The table below sets out HSBC Bank plc's current understanding of the third-party security interests that may exist over clients' safe custody assets. We may periodically update this page to reflect important changes, including the agents used in each market. HSBC Bank plc provides information on this page to comply with applicable regulatory requirements and for general information purposes only. The content of this page does not constitute investment advice or any form of recommendation and you are solely responsible for making your own independent appraisal of and investigations into products, investments and transactions.
