Segregation of securities
ES-OSL must offer an account structure that makes it possible to separate securities belonging to one participant from securities belonging to other participants, and segregate securities belonging to the participants’ clients. ES-OSL operates an end-investor account model by which we offer all levels of segregation.
ES-OSL shall publicly disclose the levels of protection and the costs associated with the different levels of segregation that we provide. You can read more about the different levels of segregation below.
