For a corporate applicant, we are required to identify the full ownership structure, up to the ultimate beneficial owner(s), who must be individuals.

Please provide a full structure chart detailing all associated entities and key individuals at the outset.

We require full KYC / CDD for any individuals or entities within the structure that hold 25% or more of the issued shares of an entity in the level below. Please see the relevant KYC / CDD section for these requirements.

For a corporate entity, please provide:

  • Certificate of Incorporation

  • Authorised company signatory list with specimen signatures (only required for the applicant company or signing authority on the account)

  • Applicable KYC/CDD for any entity or individual holding 25% or more of the issued shares
  • Individual KYC for at least 2 Directors*

*Only required where the application forms have not been signed by the Company Directors

**If the account is reviewed as high-risk, please note that we will require individual KYC on all Directors and Authorised Signatories.
