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 or company that opens an account. When you open an account, you will be required to provide your name, address date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you and any other persons listed on your account which have trading authority.
