Information about Procedures for Opening a New Account
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: when you open an investment account we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, tax payer or other government identification number and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask for your driver’s license, passport or other identifying document numbers that help to establish your identity or the legal existence of the client opening the account.
