Securities Safekeeping Fee 


Nasdaq applies a safekeeping fee for securities calculated in basis points annualized on market value. The fee is charged on a monthly basis based on the pledged securities monthly average market value per Custody Account. The fee is calculated using Actual/360–day convention.

The amounts are then converted to EUR using the exchange rates for that day. At the end of the month the amounts are aggregated to obtain the average value per Custody Account. 

Based on the average market value and the Actual/360–day convention the safekeeping fee is calculated.
