We verify your identity using global databases through our partner Onfido and credit bureaus in each country. We ask for a selfie and use face biometrics to match your face to your photo ID document (so we know it's you and your ID hasn't been stolen). We check your identity against sanctions lists and PEP lists (politically exposed persons).
A member of our compliance team reviews and verifies your source of funds/wealth data (income, assets, occupation) so we can be comfortable around AML (anti-money laundering) which is the purpose of the legislation. We use a combination of real time tech with APIs connected to multiple databases, and human review using a risk based approach compliant with best practice international standards.
