VI. Bank-Securities 3rd Party Depositary FAQ
1. Is there a deadline for customers to go to the depositary bank for confirmation after the customer has appointed at the securities company?
A: No. The procedure of appointing the depositary bank is not completed until the customer’s confirmation at the appointed bank. Before confirmation, the customer can not deposit or withdraw money from the bank account.
2. How can a customer change the previously appointed depositary bank as the depositary bank under Hua Xia 3rd Party Depositary service?
A: First of all, the customer needs to make sure that the securities brokerage firm he/she is using is a partner of Hua Xia Bank for 3rd Party Depositary services. If so, the customer can change the 3rd Party Depositary bank at the counter of the securities company. Please follow the steps described below:
(1) Initiate “securities to bank”. On Day 1, the customer initiates “securities to bank” through the securities company or Hua Xia Bank to transfer all the money in his/her securities account to the bank card of the previous appointed bank, thus the balance in his/her securities account is 0.
(2) Cancel the 3rd Party Depositary bank. On Day 2 (the balance in his/her securities account is 0 and no transaction such as bank-securities transfer, dividend payment, and buying or selling shares taken place), the customer goes to the office of the securities company where he/she opens the securities account with required documents and cancel the depositary bank.
