Compensation Limits

If you sustained losses in relation to securities, the amount of compensation payable to you will not exceed HK$500,000. If you sustained losses in relation to futures contracts, the upper limit of the compensation is also HK$500,000. The limit is per person. For joint account, each of the account holders will be subject to a maximum payment limit of HK$500,000.

Where the Investor Compensation Company Limited ("ICC") makes any payment out of the Investor Compensation Fund in respect of any claim for compensation, the Securities and Futures Commission ("SFC") and the ICC shall be subrogated to all the rights and remedies of the claimant in relation to the loss. All assets recovered by the SFC or the ICC from the subrogation shall become part of the Investor Compensation Fund.
