SECTION 3: RISK AND INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES
RISK Investing in securities traded on stock exchanges will result in fluctuations in the value of the investments, and the income received from them. Certain investments may result in the total loss of monies invested therein. Some of the main reasons why the value of your investments can and may fluctuate is that: the financial standing and trading ability of the organisation invested in may change; the securities themselves are subject to the laws of supply and demand and are capable of significant price movements irrespective of market and corporate factors and can be influenced by perceptions alone; the stock market can move positively or negatively due to economic, political, currency and other factors, both locally and internationally. Fixed interest investments are also subject to the above factors and are affected by actual or expected changes in levels of interest rates. Assessing the risk of any of these factors is highly subjective and, in line with market conditions can change over time in response to specific events or revised social or economic forecasts and eventualities. It is not possible to lay down precise guidelines for the measurement of risk or the potential impact, whether positive or negative, upon an investment portfolio. Risk, however, may be managed by creating a diversified portfolio and by the use of various financial investments. Diversification throughout a number of geographical areas also helps to lower exposure to economic and political factors within one country. Investing offshore may involve other risks, such as currency fluctuations, different accounting standards to those recognised in SA and limited information available to local investors.

Material Obligations 24.1 In terms of the SECA and the rules of the JSE, members are required to ensure that buyers and sellers of listed securities are aware of their material obligations in terms of the provisions of SECA and the rules which relate to the trading and settlement of uncertificated securities. Controlled Clients (clients whose funds and uncertificated securities are under the control of a Custody and Settlement Member (”CSM”) or a Custody and Settlement Agent (”CSA”) or whose settlements take place via the Central Security Depositary (”CSD”) participant of the member as if the client’s funds or uncertificated securities were under the control of a CSM or a CSA) In terms of SECA and the rules, the material obligations of clients include the obligations set out below. 25.1.1 Each transaction represented by a single contract note between the ultimate seller and ultimate buyer; 25.1.2 Applying the market convention that parties to a transaction have a contractual obligation to cause such transaction to settle on a specific day, settlement day (which is currently five business days after the trade was done); and 25.1.3 On a net basis per member, per listed security. 25.2.1 A controlled client must sign a mandate in favour of a member before any cash or securities are received by the member. 25.2.2 A controlled client must obtain a receipt from the member when the securities are placed under the control of the member. 25.2.3 A controlled client must receive a monthly statement and reconcile the STRATE approved securities reflected on the statement with his records. 25.2.4 A controlled client must advise a member of its choice for an elective corporate action by no later than 16h00, 3 days prior to the record date for that corporate action subject to paragraph 5.3 before. 25.2.5 A controlled client must advise a member if it wishes to receive information from any issuer regarding securities that the client owns. 25.3 A controlled client may not place an order to sell a STRATE approved security unless: • the securities to be sold are in the custody of the member and have been dematerialised; or • another transaction has been entered into by the client for the equivalent number of uncertified securities to be available for settlement on T+5; or • the client has made arrangements to borrow the equivalent number of uncertified securities and the equivalent securities will be available for settlement to take place on T+5. 25.4 By no later than 16h00 on T+1, a controlled client which is not a carry account client, must ensure that the member is in a position to settle the transaction on T+5 or on the settlement time line as amended by the JSE and/or STRATE authorities. 25.5 25.5.1 Where the controlled client fails to put the member in a position before 16h00 on T+1 to settle the transaction on settlement day, the controlled client will forfeit any rights that the client may have had in respect of the said transaction, including the right to enforce performance of the transaction. Notwithstanding such forfeiture, the client shall remain liable for any losses, costs and charges incurred, or charge imposed by the member which affected the said transaction. 25.5.2 A member shall have the right but not the obligation to allow a controlled client to honour his obligations until 10h00 on T+3 after which the obligation to settle reverts to the member. 25.5.3 Where the controlled client has nor complied with its obligation to put the member in a position to effect settlement and neither the member nor the settlement authority is able to effect settlement, the settlement authority shall as at 16h00 on T+4 declare the transaction to be a failed trade. 25.5.4 Notwithstanding 25.2.2 and 25.2.3 above, the notification at any stage prior to 16h00 on T+2 by a controlled client to a member of its inability to put the member in a position to settle, may result in the declaration of a failed trade by 09h00 on the appropriate business day. 25.6 Where a transaction of a controlled client fails, such client may be responsible for any balance of the non-failing party’s transaction which was closed. The settlement authority will close a failed trade against another transaction. When such closing constitutes a part of a larger transaction, the non-failing party may apply to the settlement authority to have the balance cancelled. If successful, the failing controlled client will take place of the non-failing party for the balance of such transaction. 25.7 As a consequence of the controlled client not meeting the material obligations and where the member or the settlement authority is able to effect settlement by borrowing funds or securities the member shall be entitled to: In respect of a sale transaction188.8.131.52 immediately buy the required securities for the account of the client; and 184.108.40.206 the client must pay to the member the difference between the sale consideration of the securities the client requested to be sold and the purchase consideration of the securities which were brought in by the member, including any interest; In respect of a purchase transaction25.7.2 220.127.116.11 Immediately sell the securities purchased for the account of the client; 18.104.22.168 the client must pay the member the difference between the purchase consideration of the securities which were purchased at the clients request and the sale consideration of the securities sold by the member, including interest. 25.7.3 If there is any amount still owing by the client after the member has taken the steps set out above, the member may also sell any other securities of the client which the member holds for the client or which the member may receive on behalf of the client in order to realise the difference. 25.8 Where a controlled client has not made available securities timeously and a member borrows securities to effect settlement for the controlled client, the controlled client is responsible for any costs that may be incurred by the member. These costs include the costs related to manufactured dividends. 25.9 Where a member borrows funds either directly or via the settlement for a controlled client who has not made payment of the required funds to the member timeously, the controlled client is responsible for any costs incurred by the member or penalties imposed on the member in this regard. 25.10

Where a controlled client does not meet his obligations timeously and neither the member nor the settlement authority is able to borrow funds or uncertified securities to ensure that settlement of the transaction takes place, then the transaction of the failing controlled client shall be closed by the member in accordance with instructions provided by the settlement authority. A failing controlled client will in addition to any fees and penalties, be responsible for any compensation that is paid to the non-failing party. A client may be invited by the JSE to voluntarily give up a transaction, or a part of a transaction, or a part of a transaction, where the JSE believes that it is likely that the transaction will not settle because of a potential failed trade.
