About Business line/Function :

Securities Asia executes its clients’ orders through its own seats in SEHK. Upon execution of each order, a transaction contract is created between Securities Asia and the client. On the market side, Securities Asia’s transaction contracts with HKSCC, are novated to its designated third party clearer, BP2S and as a result, BP2S becomes the contracting and settlement counterpart of HKSCC in respect of Securities Asia’s market transactions, with Securities Asia becoming responsible for settling its net market obligations with BP2S acting as Securities Asia’s clearer.

For settlements, Securities Asia sends its SIs to BP2S, who on one hand settles Securities Asia’s client’s side transactions for Securities Asia in its capacity as Securities Asia’s custodian and on the other, settles with Securities Asia the CNS positions as Securities Asia’s counterpart.
