UK Money Laundering Regulations
We are obliged to conform to the UK Money Laundering Regulations and to the guidance notes from the Joint Money Laundering Steering Group. This process may require sight of certain documentation to verify client identity and place of residence, and we may request clarification on how any monies being invested were obtained. If you provide false or inaccurate information and we suspect fraud or money-laundering we will record this. We may not forward any applications or money to third parties/ product providers until our verification requirements have been met, and we will take no responsibility for any resulting delay. In circumstances where sufficient verification is not received in a timely manner after we have received completed applications, the application(s) and any monies may be returned to you.
If you make a complaint and we are unable to meet our liabilities, you may be entitled to compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
