Client Safe Custody Asset Registration by Market

This page provides information on how HSBC Bank plc (“we” or “our”) holds client assets and other information relating to the subcustodians we use. Unless we have agreed otherwise in writing, the information includes how legal title to the assets clients deposit with us will typically be registered or recorded in each market and for each agent.

Importantly, there may be instances where legal title to client assets is not recorded in the client’s own name or the name of a nominee and is recorded in the name of either a third party or in HSBC Bank plc’s own name in accordance with applicable Financial Conduct Authority rules.

This page is provided for information purposes and does not comprise any form of advice or recommendation.

Please contact your Prime Finance Client Relationship Manager if you have any questions.
