Before we can open your account, we are required to verify your identity. If you are an individual and a resident in the UK, Sweden, Germany and Canada, the details you submit to us will be checked by a third party credit agency. This is not a credit check and will not show on your records. If we are unable to identify you electronically, we will request further documentation to complete your application. Once your account is open we may ask you to provide further documentation such as evidence of funds to support your trading activity. Please note we are unable to accept applications from US residents.
