A custodian or custodian bank is a financial institution that holds customers’ securities for safekeeping to prevent them from being stolen or lost. The custodian may hold stocks or other assets in electronic or physical form. Since they are responsible for the safety of assets and securities worth hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars, custodians tend to be large and reputable firms.
The National Australia Bank (NAB), recognised as one of the four largest financial institutions in Australia in terms of market capitalisation, revenue and number of clientele, is a custodian bank for VT Markets’ clients. All clients’ funds are held in segregated accounts under the applicable laws and regulations. This is to safeguard clients’ assets and ensure that the broker does not use these funds to conduct their business operations. VT Markets complies with AML/CTF regulations and employs strict procedures and compliance policies regarding the operation of all client accounts.
