  2. Information about affiliations, whether you are affiliated with or work for the US-registered broker-dealer or FINRA, a senior executive or a 10% shareholder in a publicly-traded company, and whether you are a current or former politically exposed person or a close associate of one

Where necessary, we may request additional documents such as proof of wealth/funds (payslips, bank statements, invoices, inheritance confirmations, etc.).

This appears to be a lengthy procedure, but most of our customers complete it in under 5 minutes!

The details and documents required to verify your account might differ according to the country you're registering from and other individual factors.

What if I don’t have some of these documents or information?

Unfortunately, we are required by law to ask for specific details and documents, but don’t worry, the verification process remains available in the app for you to complete at any time. When you have all of the documents, you can return to the app and finish it.
