Kimura account benefits
Kimura Trading complies with the relevant European Union Legislation.
Kimura Trading is used by ALB Limited which holds a category 3 license and is authorised to provide 2 investment services: dealing on own account and execution of orders on behalf of other persons. Kimura Trading can provide such services to retail clients, professional clients (including collective investment schemes) and eligible counterparties.
Segregation of funds
All client funds (i.e. assets and monies) deposited with Kimura Trading are fully segregated from the Company’s own funds and from any other client's and are held in bank accounts separately from the Company's own accounts and that of other clients.
Our interim and annual financial reports are audited by Price Waterhouse Coopers, a leading global financial auditor, ensuring that our operations are conducted to the highest possible standards. This ensures that funds belonging to clients cannot be used for any other purpose.
Protection for investors
Kimura Trading is used by ALB Limited which is a member of the Investor Compensation Scheme (ICS), a rescue fund for customers of failed investment firms which are licensed by the Malta Financial Services Authority.
The Scheme can only pay compensation if a licensed investment firm is unable or likely to be unable to pay claims against it. In general, this is when the licensed firm stops trading or becomes insolvent.
The Scheme is based on the EU Directive 97/9 on investor-compensation schemes. More information about the Investor Compensation Scheme is available at www.compensationschemes.org.mt
