Anti-Money Laundering (AML)

USI Money is fully committed to protecting the integrity of its transfer system.

What am I asked to do?

When you apply for a trading account, you will be asked to confirm your identity and other personal details. USI Money has verification systems to confirm your identity.

When?

You could be asked to confirm your identity whether you are applying to be a new customer or have been a customer for some time. While our identity verification systems are designed to minimise any inconvenience to you, the verification process may take 24-48 hours to complete.

Why?

Crime and terrorism need cash. Criminals turn the 'dirty' money made from drug smuggling, trafficking and other organised crime into clean money by using false identities or taking the names of innocent people - like you. Making sure that people are who they say they are is essential in the fight against crime and terrorism. This does not mean in any way that suspicion is falling on you. Any information about your identity is held confidentially and will help stop your identity being used falsely.

Who is involved?

HMRC, Government and other organisations involved in financial services - all are united in their determination to stop the spread of financial crime as part of the international effort to protect us all against crime and terrorism.

Your co-operation is vital to the successful fight against crime and terrorism.
