PEP stands for Politically Exposed Person. A PEP is someone who, through their prominent position or influence, is more susceptible to being involved in bribery or corruption.
You could also qualify as a PEP if you are a family member or a close relative of such an individual.
If your profile verification confirms that you are a Politically Exposed Person, we are legally obligated to perform a source of funds checks on you.
We cannot unflag you as a PEP or disregard the source of funds verification obligations.
