Securities Services Risk Disclosure:
Investment involves risks. The price of securities fluctuates, sometimes dramatically. The price of securities may move up or down and may become valueless. Losses may be incurred as well as profits made as a result of buying and selling securities. Customers should carefully consider whether the investment products or services mentioned herein are appropriate for them in view of their investment experience, objectives and risk tolerance level, and read the terms and conditions of relevant Securities Services before making any investment decision. For the information of Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect, please read the Information on Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect (containing a section of Risks of investing through Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect).
Risks of client assets received or held outside Hong Kong:
Client assets received or held by Dah Sing Bank, Limited outside Hong Kong are subject to the applicable laws and regulations of the relevant overseas jurisdiction which may be different from the Securities and Futures Ordinance (Cap.571) and the rules made thereunder. Consequently, such client assets may not enjoy the same protection as that conferred on client assets received or held in Hong Kong. Customers should also seek relevant professional advice on any tax obligations that might arise from investing in overseas products.
Currency Risk Disclosure:
Exchange of renminbi (RMB) to HKD or other currencies is subject to currency exchange rate fluctuation. Customers should bear the risk of RMB exchange rate fluctuations which may cause profit or loss if customer chooses to convert RMB to HKD or other currencies. RMB is currently subject to exchange controls imposed by the PRC government, the exchange rate may be easily affected by change in government policies.
Risk Disclosure Statement in relation to Securities Margin Trading Services:
Risk of Margin Trading
The risk of loss in financing a transaction by deposit of collateral is significant. The Customer may sustain losses in excess of his cash and any other assets deposited as collateral with Dah Sing Bank, Limited. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute contingent orders, such as "stop-loss" or "stop-limit" orders. The Customer may be called upon at short notice to make additional margin deposits or interest payments. If the required margin deposits or interest payments are not made within the prescribed time, his collateral may be liquidated without his consent. Moreover, the Customer will remain liable for any resulting deficit in his account and interest charged on his account. The Customer should therefore carefully consider whether such a financing arrangement is suitable in light of his own financial position and investment objectives.
Risk of Providing an Authority to Repledge Securities Collateral etc.
There is risk if the Customer provides Dah Sing Bank, Limited ("the Bank") with an authority that allows it to apply his securities or securities collateral pursuant to a securities borrowing and lending agreement, repledge his securities collateral for financial accommodation or deposit his securities collateral as collateral for the discharge and satisfaction of its settlement obligations and liabilities.
If the Customer's securities or securities collateral are received or held by the Bank in Hong Kong, the above arrangement is allowed only if the Customer consents in writing. Moreover, unless the Customer is a professional investor, his authority must specify the period for which it is current and be limited to not more than 12 months. If the Customer is a professional investor, these restrictions do not apply.
Additionally, the Customer's authority may be deemed to be renewed (i.e. without his written consent) if the Bank issues him a reminder at least 14 days prior to the expiry of the authority, and he does not object to such deemed renewal before the expiry date of his then existing authority.
The Customer is not required by any law to sign these authorities. But an authority may be required by the Bank, for example, to facilitate margin lending to him or to allow his securities or securities collateral to be lent to or deposited as collateral with third parties. The Bank should explain to the Customer the purposes for which one of these authorities is to be used.
If the Customer signs one of these authorities and his securities or securities collateral are lent to or deposited with third parties, those third parties will have a lien or charge on his securities or securities collateral. Although the Bank is responsible to the Customer for securities or securities collateral lent or deposited under his authority, a default by it could result in the loss of his securities or securities collateral.
A cash account not involving securities borrowing and lending is available from the Bank. If the Customer does not require margin facilities or does not wish his securities or securities collateral to be lent or pledged, do not sign the above authorities and ask to open this type of cash account.
