IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT
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 entity that opens an account.
This notice answers some questions about ITG’s Customer Identification Program.
WHAT TYPES OF INFORMATION WILL I NEED TO PROVIDE?
When you open account at ITG Inc., we are required to collect the following information:
- Legal name
- Business address
- Tax identification number
- Other information that will allow us to identify you
We may request additional identifying documents, such as principal place of business, local office, employer identification number, certified articles of incorporation, government-issued business license, partnership agreement or trust agreement.
U.S. Department of the Treasury, Securities and Exchange Commission, FINRA and New York Stock Exchange rules already require you to provide most of this information. These rules also may require you to provide additional information.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON’T PROVIDE THE INFORMATION REQUESTED OR YOUR INSTITUTION’S IDENTITY CAN’T BE VERIFIED?
ITG Inc. may not be able to open an account or carry out transactions for your firm. If ITG Inc. has already opened an account for your firm, we may have to close it.
We thank you for your patience and hope that you will support the financial industry’s efforts to deny terrorists and money launderers access to America’s financial system.
