What is a Nominee?

Section 1 of the Financial Markets Act ("FMA or the Act") defines a Nominee as:

A person approved under section 76 to act as the holder of securities or of an interest in securities on behalf of other persons.

The above statutory and legislative requirements limit Strate's obligations to the approval of Participant Nominees and their subsequent adherence to Directive SA.7 only. Strate does not undertake the regulation of Nominees.

It must be noted that where an Authorised User (broker) as defined in the Act, has an account with a Participant, their Nominee is approved by the relevant exchange in terms of section 76 (1)(a) of the act.

The approval of a Participants' Holding Company includes the approval of its Nominee.


Approval of and requirements for Strate Nominees   

Application in terms of section 76 (1)(b) and Strate Rule 6.6.4 must comply with the requirements as detailed in Strate Directive SA.7 "Application for Approval of a Nominee".
