What a Power of Attorney can and can’t do
Attorney identification requirements
In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations, we’re required to confirm the identity of all investors and their associated representatives controlling or funding investments on their behalf.

Until the identities of all associated individuals have been verified, restrictions will be applied and will remain in place until outstanding verification has been obtained. These restrictions will not affect the value of the investment, but may prevent certain transactions from being completed.
Documentary evidence requested to complete verification of identity will be needed for each associated representative and should be submitted along with the confirmation of identity form below:
