Compensation Limits

Scenario 3 - Holder of multiple accounts

Mrs. Ho holds two securities accounts at ABC Brokerage Firm holding shares worth HK$350,000 and $250,000 as at the default date respectively. What is the maximum compensation amount for Mrs. Ho if ABC Brokerage Firm defaulted?

The maximum compensation amount for Mrs. Ho would be a total of HK$500,000 as the compensation limit is applied on a per-investor basis for securities account and futures contracts accounts respectively, regardless of how many securities accounts or how many futures contracts accounts a person has at the defaulting brokerage.
