Nominee Trading Account
A nominee trading account at investors europe is a private online client trading account for an individual person or for a company, Trust or Fund. This trading account is denominated by a number (e.g.”MSB 5002″) and is controlled by the investor who benefits from exactly the same protection he would get if he traded in his own name, thus bolstering his right to financial privacy since his details are never transmitted to third parties, custodians/ end-brokers and other financial institutions Investors Europe might be dealing with, as agent, on his behalf.
By way of example, if the client’s assets are held by one of our end brokers in the UK, these are recognised as belonging to an underlying client of Investors Europe by the UK’s Investor Protection Scheme (http://www.fscs.org.uk/) even though these are not held in the name of the beneficial owner but designated as client ‘MSB 5002’.
Investors Europe provides nominee trading accounts to all clients as a norm because client confidentiality is at the core of our activity as regulated stock brokers.
