What proof of identity and residence do I need to provide when investing?

When you invest with us, we will ask that you, or your financial adviser, provide us with proof of your identity and residence. This is really important as it helps us to verify your identity and protect your account from fraud.
As part of the Money Laundering (AML) regulations, we have a responsibility to ensure we have the necessary procedures in place to deter criminals, by making it harder for them to use money laundering to conceal criminal activity.
We understand that it can sometimes be inconvenient to provide this information but it is very important that we work together to help keep your investment safe.
If we do not receive the correct AML documentation that allows us to verify your identity, your application could be delayed until the correct information is received.
