9. Segregation of Client Money

(1) Subject to Rule 9(2), a Licensed Firm must not deposit its own money into a Client Account.
(2) A Licensed Firm may hold money other than Client Money in a Client Account if it is–
(a) a minimum sum required to open the account or to keep it open,
(b) money that is temporarily in the account in accordance with Rule 8(3) (a mixed remittance), or
(c) interest credited to the account that exceeds the amount payable to Clients as interest, which excess must be transferred from the Client Bank Account within ten (10) business days of the interest having been so credited.
(3) A Licensed Firm must maintain systems and controls for identifying money that is not permitted to be in a Client Account and for transferring any such money that is in a Client Account out of that account without delay.
