In common with most other reputable international banking centres that pride themselves on the integrity of their operations, we require that individuals wishing to open new accounts and signatories on new company accounts complete our due diligence process. As part of this process we confirm your identity and signature by reviewing a notarized copy of your passport. We also request a reference letter from a bank and a person with a professional designation. The extent of the due diligence process for individuals is dependent on the services required from the bank. Companies are required to prove their legal existence by supplying us among other things, with incorporation documentation and corporate resolutions which approve the commencement of the banking relationship.
