KYC Policy (Know Your Customer)
The term KYC simply refers to Know Your Customer, a standard form that provides financial institutions with pertinent information about a client’s financial position and investment knowledge. The KYC documents are of utmost importance for an enhanced trading service. They also foster strong ties between the account manager and you, the trader, ensuring that proactive measures are taken to protect your interest when required.
Know You Customer policies are equally important for banks and other financial institutions worldwide. These policies are applied to prevent identity thefts, money laundering, financial frauds and terrorist activities.
MarketsCFDS holds a zero tolerance fraud policy, and is taking all measures possible to prevent it. Any fraudulent activity will be documented and all related accounts to it will be immediately closed.
When you deposit funds we will require the following documents (All must be in high quality and in color):
- A copy of your valid passport or government ID.
- Proof of address – a utility bill or a bank statement. The document should display your full name and residential address as well as a date of issue. It should not be older than 3 months.
- A copy or a clear picture of the debit/credit card used to make the deposit. Please ensure that the first 12 numbers in front of the card are not visible (you can cover it with a paper), the CVV (3 numbers at the back of the card) are not visible and you have manually signed the back of your card.
- A Declaration Of Deposit form signed by the trader after every deposit.
When do I need to provide these documents?
We highly recommend that you provide all the necessary documents as soon as you can to avoid any account activation delays. We require the receipt of all the necessary documents prior to making any cash transaction to your benefit. Please note that the full KYC documentations are required before any trading activities can take place on your account.
Please note that if we do not receive the required documents on time, your pending withdrawals will be cancelled. We will notify you on such event via our system.
How can I send you these documents?
Please scan your documents, or take a high quality digital camera picture, and send it to [email protected][ts_main_domain] or to your account manager.
