06. Regulated and Safe funds
We comply to ASIC regulations by holding our retail client funds in segregated bank accounts. Rakuten Securities Australia meets and exceeds the requirements of ASIC Regulations and clearly distinguishes retail client money from its own by holding retail client funds in trust or segregated client bank accounts. Treating retail client money in this way ensures that in the event of Rakuten Securities Australia becoming insolvent, funds held in these accounts will be returned to clients. Rakuten Securities performs daily client money reconciliations in accordance with regulation requirements. This process ensures that funds held in trust or segregated bank accounts accurately reflect retail client assets.
*About spread [(with exception)]
Normally you are trading on the spread mentioned above, but spreads may widen in situations such as a fall in transaction volume in the exchange market or concentration in one direction. In addition, please note that the advertisement spread figure does not guarantee the spread at the time of actual transaction, and the actual spread you recieve may not match the advertised value.
In addition, wider spreads may occur in the following situations:
• Weekday early morning (roughly 7:30 to 8:30 * One hour will be increased during summer time).
• Domestic and overseas financial market holidays.
• Before and after announcement of major economic indicators.
• When a catastrophic event such as an earthquake or a sudden event such as a political change or a serious event related to finance or economy occurs.
