Safety of Client Funds

Furthermore, Royce has years of experience managing risk, a strong balance sheet, and offers additional legal and structural guarantees:

Client funds held with Royce are maintained in separate customer accounts and may never be utilized for operating expenses or for other purposes or commingled with Royce operating capital.

Funds are withdrawn from these bank accounts only as a direct result of clients' trading activities or clients' request for withdrawal. In the unlikely event of Royce bankruptcy, client funds are legally protected and returned directly to the customer.

Furthermore, Royce maintains a balance sheet with Net Capital in excess of most minimum regulatory requirements
