In the unlikely event of SelfWealth going into administration or filing for bankruptcy, you could continue to trade directly with Phillip Capital Limited (PCL).
What happens to my holdings and cash if PhillipCapital goes out of business?
In the unlikely event of default (such as bankruptcy or administration) of PhillipCapital Limited, each Client as the beneficial owner of the securities is entitled to claim their securities from the relevant omnibus account, provided there is no current dispute of the Client’s ownership of the securities.
To avoid doubt, in the unlikely event of default of Phillip Securities Pte Ltd (the sub-custodian), Phillip Capital Limited would take appropriate steps on behalf of the beneficial owners to submit a claim to the liquidator. The above will be subject to the liquidation event process at that point in time.
