IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT

To help fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, PAA Capital Group obtains, verifies, and records information that identifies each person who, and entity that, opens an account with the Firm.

What does this mean for you? When you open an account, we will ask you for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see a driver’s license, passport, or other identifying documents from you, including a Skype Video Verification.

PATRIOT ACT Certification

Pursuant to the USA PATRIOT Act and final rules issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, a U.S. bank or a U.S. broker-dealer in securities (a “Covered Financial Institution“) is required to obtain certain information from any “Foreign Bank” that maintains a correspondent account with it.

As permitted by the final rules, PAA Capital Group has prepared a Global Certification for use by any financial institution that believes it requires a Patriot Act Certification from the PAA Capital Group or one of its branches or listed subsidiaries. Please use this Certification instead of asking the PAA Capital Group or one of its branches or listed subsidiaries to complete a separate Certification form.
