The USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 requires financial institutions to take extra steps to prevent fraud, identity theft, money laundering and the financing of terrorism. It requires us to obtain information from an individual or legal entity to help establish identity.
This means that, when you open an account or as our regular due diligence requires, we may ask for your date of birth, address, driver’s license or other identifying documents to confirm your identity. Additional documentation may be required for a legal entity client as well.
Your cooperation and understanding is appreciated as we take the appropriate measures to ensure compliance with this important regulation.
