It is important to understand that when you purchase Shares with Saxo Capital Markets, the Shares may not be CHESS Sponsored. This means that your SMSF may not be the actual owner of the Shares. If this is the case and you will need to confirm directly with the Broker that the Shares are actually held on trust for your SMSF by Saxo Capital Markets. This may expose your SMSF to additional risk in the event that Saxo Capital Markets ceases to trade or becomes insolvent. In this event your SMSF will rank as an unsecured creditor meaning that you may not recoup the full value of your Investment with the Broker. We suggest that you seek independent advice or discuss these additional risks directly with Saxo Capital Markets prior to establishing an account with them. Similar risks apply with CFDs.
