Holding Restrictions – Investment Funds – Thailand
Restrictions on customers
CBL’s customers or ultimate beneficial owners residing in Thailand are not allowed to hold Thailand investment funds on the Register market through CBL. It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure compliance with the restriction.
Certain funds may impose specific restrictions on investor domicile. Customers must refer to and abide by the restrictions (if any) contained in the fund prospectus before entering into transactions.
Restrictions on settlement
Clearstream Banking’s cash account no. 00100869378 with Standard Chartered Bank (Thai) Public Company Limited is an Non-Resident Baht Account for Securities (NRBS) account. Customer cash accounts with Clearstream Banking are considered to be NRBS accounts.
Customers must ensure that clean payments to fund settlement transactions are paid to the Clearstream Banking NRBS account.
Customers withdrawing their THB cash balances attained from sales or corporate action events can only instruct their NRBS account and must ensure that the receiving cash account is a designated NRBS account. Payments from the NRBS account to an Non-Resident Baht Account (NRBA) account are not permitted by Bank of Thailand and will fail at market level.
Customers are strongly requested to comply with the regulations as Clearstream Banking cannot be held liable for failed or late payment execution due to non-compliance with the aforementioned regulations.
