Important Information about Opening Accounts in the U.S.

To help the U.S. government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, U.S. law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.

Our U.S. offices are prohibited by law from processing transactions in any way associated with a commercial customer's internet gambling activities. Accordingly, customers cannot participate in any transaction presented to us for processing that is associated with, or supportive of, internet gambling activities and we retain the right to refuse processing any transaction we suspect may be associated with such activities.
