    • CIR 13.6.1 Guidance

      A prime broker is a PersonG who provides to a FundG a range of services including custody and depository services, trading and execution services, clearing and settlement services and financing to support the Fund's investment activities. Such financing activities generally include stock lending and borrowing. The restrictions in Rules CIR A1.3.1(c) and (f) of Appendix 1 (App 1) prevent a Fund ManagerG of a Hedge FundG from authorising a prime broker to commingle the assets of the FundG with any other assets held by or available to the prime broker and use those assets as collateral to support the prime broker's cross lending and borrowing activities involving FundsG to which it acts as the prime broker. However, the restrictions in CIR A1.3.2(c) and (f) do not apply if a Fund ManagerG of a Hedge FundG can comply with the requirements relating to the use of prime brokers set out in CIR Rule 13.6.3.

      [Amended] RM158/2015 (Made 9th December 2015). [VER19/02-16]
