Olikriet Capital protects clients’ fund in a number of ways
Your money is held in SEGREGATED ACCOUNTS at regulated banks
We NEVER use your money for our own business activity
Your money and assets (shares, for example) are NEVER merged with OCL’s own money or assets
OCL NEVER use your money for business activities, including for hedging trades with other counterparties (or as margin for our own hedging trades)
Unlike banks, investment firms like OCL are required to separate client money and assets from their own resources. This means that we’re not allowed to use them in the course of our business activities, and that client money is completely ring-fenced and protected in the unlikely event that OCL became insolvent.
The only clients whose money is not treated like this are clients we have classified as sophisticated persons who have signed a legal document explaining how their money and assets are held differently (this is known as 'title transfer').
