Custody services ensuring capital safety, efficient clearing and robust, transparent reporting.
In order to ensure full transparency, we do not take possession of our client's funds. Rather, your funds will always remain in custody with one of our approved broker-dealer firms. The account is open in your name and you have full control over it at all times.
Our partnering brokers are highly reputable firms with truly global reach and a prominent local presence who operate under strict regulatory regimes.

In addition to safeguarding client funds and providing market access and clearing services, our partnering brokers ensure full and proper transaction and account reporting.
We complement our partners' back-office reporting periodically by issuing portfolio strategy updates. These updates are an extension of our quarterly and annual market outlooks and help you understand the risk and return potential of your portfolio in a given market context.
Our Canadian partnering custodians are IIROC - regulated member firms who are participants in the CPIF - Canadian Investor Protection Fund.
All accounts open with such partners thus benefit of CIPF coverage to the extent permitted by law.
The coverage applies in the event of custodian rather than ST Global insolvency; ST Global, however, does not hold any of your funds or assets. No market losses are ever covered but cash and securities losses are covered within certain limits in the event of broker-dealer / custodian firm insolvency.
