Custodian definition

Custodian has a particular significance in relation to IG's platform. Here, we define custodian in general investing and explain what it means to you when trading with IG.

A custodian (also called a custodian bank) can be described as a financial institution specialised in the safekeeping of financial assets, such as equities and bonds, for a firm or an individual. The financial assets can be held in electronic or physical form. In addition to safeguarding financial assets, custodian services may also include administering voluntary and involuntary corporate actions such as dividends and rights issues.
