Please note that, effective 23 October 2018, pending instructions in the impacted securities will be cancelled. Any positions which remain on customer accounts will be blocked from this date, so all instructions will be rejected thereafter.

Instructions to receive or deliver affected securities until 22 October 2018

When instructing the receipt of any of affected securities, customers must add the following representation into the narrative of their instruction:  “We represent that we have verified the identity of the ultimate recipient of the quantity of securities covered by this instruction and that it is neither a U.S. person nor any person who is, or who is equivalent to, a Specially Designated National by the United States Department of the Treasury.” 

For domestic market settlement, the customer delivering securities to the domestic market must either provide the same representation or represent that the instruction relates to an on-exchange transaction.
