A specific principal may use an omnibus trading account only after opening a securities trading account; the omnibus trading account may be used to participate in ordinary trading (i.e., trading from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. under Article 3 of the Operating Rules of this Corporation), after-market fixed-price trading, and odd-lot trading of this Corporation. It may also, after carrying out a securities borrowing transaction through a securities firm under this Corporation's Securities Lending and Borrowing Regulations, [use the borrowed securities] to trade through the omnibus trading account. A specific investor that is allowed by regulations to engage in credit trading may engage in credit trading through the omnibus trading account.
"Specific principals" under the preceding paragraph are limited to offshore overseas Chinese and foreign nationals, domestic institutional investors, and discretionary investment customers.

If a mandatary is an institutional investor, the power of attorney shall be signed/sealed by that institutional investor. However, where a same mandatory is mandated by offshore overseas Chinese or foreign nationals, domestic funds, or units of a same group, the mandatary shall provide a statement specifying the principals' ID numbers or uniform invoice numbers, names, and other relevant information. This Corporation may, in accordance with operational needs, require securities firms to provide certifying documents relating to the aforesaid authorizations.
