Custodian service in Forex (and other markets) basically allows large traders to keep their money in their own bank while being able to trade with brokers who offer this service. Bank to bank settlement is then made between banks on a daily basis and the trader is credited/debited according to his own performance. This of course is pretty convenient for traders who do not trust their broker’s bank or do not want to move large chunks of money for whatever reason.
