Standard Chartered Bank Online Unit Trust Platform Terms


 
The Online Unit Trust Platform is an online transaction platform for transacting in Unit Trusts. These Terms contain important information regarding the terms and conditions which will apply to your dealings with us in relation to that service. You should read this document carefully and keep it for future reference.

Certain risks relating to online trading are described in Part B of this document. This document does not disclose or discuss all of the risks, or other significant aspects, of conducting Transactions in Unit Trusts. You should not construe these or any other statements as legal, tax or financial advice.

The Online Unit Trust Platform is an EXECUTION-ONLY platform. If you wish to receive advice from us in relation to transacting in Unit Trusts, you should not use the Online Unit Trust Platform but should instead contact your banker for further information. We are not acting as your investment advisor in respect of any Transaction effected through the Online Unit Trust Platform, and you must not regard it or us as acting in that capacity. You should consult your own independent legal, tax and investment advisors before entering into any Transaction via the Online Unit Trust Platform and only enter into a Transaction if you have fully understood its nature, the contractual relationship into which you are entering, all relevant terms and conditions and the nature and extent of your exposure to loss. You will not be able to execute Transactions on the Online Unit Trust Platform if you have been assessed by us as not possessing the requisite knowledge or experience to trade in Unit Trusts offered on the Online Unit Trust Platform.

6.3   You must read the risk factors contained in these Terms in conjunction with any other risks factors that we may advise you of from time to time. You should also seek appropriate and independent advice and conduct an independent analysis regarding any proposed Transaction.

7.   Risks relating to the use of the internet or other electronic medium

7.1   Any communication or transaction via or information (including any document) transmitted via the internet or other electronic medium involves risks and by accessing the Online Unit Trust Transaction Platform, you acknowledge that you understand and accept the following risks:
a. We may use such authentication technologies as we deem appropriate. No authentication, verification or computer security technology is completely secure or safe. You agree to bear all risks of unauthorised access/use, hacking or identity theft.
b. The internet or other electronic media (including without limitation electronic devices, services of third party telecom service providers such as mobile phones or other handheld trading devices or interactive voice response systems) are an inherently unreliable form of communication, and such unreliability may be beyond our control.
c. Any information (including any document) transmitted, or communication or transactions made, over the internet or through other electronic media (including electronic devices, services of third party telecom service providers such as mobile phones or other handheld trading devices or interactive voice response systems) may be subject to interruption, transmission blackout, delayed transmission due to data volume, internet traffic, market volatility or incorrect data transmission (including incorrect price quotation) or stoppage of price data feed due to the public nature of the internet or other electronic media.
d. As a result of such unreliability:
i) there may be time-lags, delays, failures or loss of data or loss of confidentiality in the transmission of data and receipt of Instructions;
ii) while we may believe certain data to be reliable, there may be no independent basis for us to verify or contradict the accuracy or completeness of such data; and
iii) Instructions may be executed at prices different from those prevailing at the time the Instructions were given.

8.   Risks relating to authorised persons

    There are substantial risks in allowing another person to trade or operate any account you have with us, and it is possible that Instructions could be given by persons who are not properly authorised. You accept all of the risks of such an operation and irrevocably release us from all liabilities arising out of or in connection with such Instructions, whether taken by us or otherwise.

9.   Risk of changes that could affect your position

9.1   Changes in prices, rates of exchange, fees, charges and other factors may impact upon your Transactions. We are entitled to act upon your Instructions and you cannot assume that we will warn you if your Instructions are ill-timed or inadvisable for any reason or if the Instructions are likely to cause you loss.

9.2   Before you give any Instruction, you should ensure you understand the financial aspects of the proposed Transaction and obtain a clear explanation of all commission, fees and other charges for which you will be liable. These matters can reduce your net profit (if any) or increase your loss.
