    2. Brokerage firms and securities dealers’ contribute NT 3.4bn to JSCF as calculated below.
  • The JSCF is shared by all securities firms, each of which contributes to the Fund according to the formula below:
    1. Fixed Part: Each brokerage firm shall contribute NT$3.5mn, with an extra NT$0.5mn for each additional branch. Each securities dealers shall contribute NT$5mn.
