Member Regulation Policy

Effective Date: December 31, 2021 

  1. Financial Institution Bond coverage

Dealer Members (Dealers) are reminded that the standard wording of the Financial Institution Bond (FIB) excludes coverage of negotiable securities transported through couriers unless armored motor vehicles are used in the transportation.  This exclusion of coverage does not apply to negotiable securities that are transmitted through Dealers’ messengers.

Dealers are therefore advised that when arranging transportation of negotiable securities through a courier, the courier should be advised to use armored vehicle in order to avoid potential losses.
