3.2 Issuer Risks

Given you are dealing with Pacific Financial Derivatives Ltd as counterparty to every transaction, you will have an exposure to us in relation to each transaction. This is common to all over-the-counter contracts such as Margin Foreign Exchange or Contract for Difference Contracts.

You are subject to Pacific Financial Derivatives Ltd’s credit risk. If we were to become insolvent, we may be unable to meet our obligations to you. Pacific Financial Derivatives Ltd enters into arrangements with financial institutions for the facilitation of transactions and settlements. If the financial conditions of Pacific Financial Derivatives Ltd or the parties with which we hold client assets deteriorate, then you could suffer a loss because the return of your capital and other client’s capital could become difficult.

Pacific Financial Derivatives Ltd’s creditworthiness has not been assessed by an approved rating agency. This means that Pacific Financial Derivatives Ltd has not received an independent opinion of its capability and willingness to repay its debts from an approved source.

Pacific Financial Derivatives Ltd manages its risk exposures by hedging some transactions with a range of counterparties, and also accepts some risk due to the natural hedging that is provided by clients taking positions opposite to other clients. We consider that those client transactions act as a natural hedge against each other. If we do not completely hedge our positions with you, and/or if one of our hedging counterparties fails to make a payment to us, the risk of us being unable to meet our obligations may be increased.

Pacific Financial Derivatives Ltd audited financial statements, can be obtained from the Disclose register at www.disclose-register.companiesoffice.govt.nz. In addition, client funds are held on trust in segregated accounts for our clients and separate to our business operating accounts. Please refer to section 5 for more information.
