With effect from 1 September 2020 or such later day as notified to you by Macquarie, Macquarie will be moving its client facing cash equities services in Asia to Macquarie Securities (Australia) Limited (“MSAL”).

Macquarie Securities (Australia) Limited was incorporated in Australia on 12 September 1984. It is the Australian Cash brokering entity for Macquarie Group and is regulated by the Australian Securities & Investment Commission (“ASIC”).

Clients previously contracting with Macquarie Bank Limited Hong Kong Branch will in future be facing MSAL as the broker of cash equities trades.

Other than the change of legal entity, there will be no material change to the service you receive from Macquarie. Commission rates will remain unchanged, and you will continue to deal with the same people, and receive the same high standard of research, sales and execution services from Macquarie throughout the region.

For further information please visit the About us section of the website. For further information, please see the FAQ section, or contact us directly at email.

In order for Macquarie to continue to provide relevant services to your organisation, please accept and agree that your organisation:

  1. has reviewed and accept MSAL’s Terms of Business, the consequential amendments to the Direct Market Access Agreement (if you are trading DMA), the Commission Sharing Agreement or Soft Dollar Agreement (if you have commission sharing arrangement) and additional terms for trading China Connect Securities (if you are trading China stock connect) and agreed that no crossing notification will be sent to you; and
  2. consent to the sharing of your organisation data and your organisation officers’ and employees’ personal data currently kept by Macquarie Bank Limited Hong Kong Branch to MSAL and its affiliates by signing off via clicking the confirmation button below.

By clicking the confirmation button, you and your organisation are deemed to have represented and warranted that you have the relevant authority.  

If you have any questions on the MSAL Terms or other changes, please contact us by return email as soon as possible and in any event prior to 30 June 2020.
