Terms And Conditions
THIS IS OR WILL FORM A LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND STANDARD CHARTERED BANK (THE “BANK”) ESTABLISHING THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH THIS WEB SITE OR ANY ONLINE SERVICE MAY BE USED. USE OF ANY ONLINE SERVICE IMPLIES THAT YOU HAVE ACCEPTED THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS THIS WEB SITE AND DO NOT USE THE ONLINE SERVICES.
Standard Chartered Bank is incorporated in England with limited liability by Royal Charter 1853 Reference Number ZC18.
The Principal Office of the Company is situated in England at 1 Basinghall Avenue, London, EC2V 5DD.
Standard Chartered Bank is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority.
Standard Chartered Bank has been granted an authority to carry on a banking business in Australia pursuant to section 9 of the Banking Act 1959 of Australia (“Banking Act”) and is a foreign authorised deposit taking institution (“ADI”) within the meaning of the Banking Act. Provisions in the Banking Act for the protection of depositors generally do not apply to foreign ADIs including Standard Chartered Bank. For example, depositors with foreign ADIs do not receive the benefit of the following protections:
- deposits are not covered by the financial claims scheme and are not guaranteed by the Australian Government;
- depositors do not receive priority ahead of amounts owed to other creditors. This means that if a foreign ADI were unable to meet its obligations or otherwise is in financial difficulties and ceases to make payments, its depositors in Australia would not receive priority for repayment of their deposits from the foreign ADI’s assets in Australia; and
- a foreign ADI is not required to hold assets in Australia to cover its deposit liabilities in Australia. This means that if the foreign ADI were unable to meet its obligations or otherwise is in financial difficulty and ceases to make payments, it is uncertain whether depositors would be able to access the full amount of their deposit.
The Banking Code of Practice 2020 (as amended, supplemented, revised, replaced and/or restated from time to time) does not apply to any transaction or service made available by Standard Chartered Bank in Australia.
Standard Chartered Bank is the holder of an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL No: 246833; ARBN 097 571 778) with its registered office address in Australia situated at Level 5, 345 George Street, Sydney, NSW 2000.

The price of securities can and does fluctuate, and any individual security may experience upward or downward movements, and may even become valueless. There is an inherent risk that losses may be incurred rather than profit made as a result of buying and selling securities.
The risk of loss in trading futures contracts or options can be substantial. In some circumstances, you may sustain losses in excess of your initial margin funds. Placing contingent orders, such as “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” orders, will not necessarily achieve the desired results. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. You may be called upon at short notice to deposit additional margin funds. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated. You will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your account.
You should therefore study and understand futures contracts and options before you trade and carefully consider whether such trading is suitable in the light of your own investment objectives, financial circumstances, tolerance to risks and investment experience. You should also read any risk disclosure statement contained in any particular investment product you intend to purchase, subscribe or trade. If in doubt, please seek specific professional advice.
YOU HEREBY AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND TO KEEP THE BANK FULLY AND EFFECTIVELY INDEMNIFIED AGAINST ANY ACTION, LIABILITY, COST, CLAIM, LOSS, DAMAGE, PROCEEDING OR EXPENSE (INCLUDING LEGAL FEES, COSTS AND EXPENSES ON A FULL INDEMNITY BASIS) SUFFERED OR INCURRED BY THE BANK ARISING FROM OR WHICH IS DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY RELATED TO:
