ID Requirements

You will need to provide a range of identification documents (IDs). The documents required will depend on whether you open the account in your name, under your company name or under the name of your trust.

Please note that accounts opened under company/trust names still need to provide the same documentation as an individual as well as the additional documentation.

You can upload your IDs via the Client Portal. A certified copy of a primary photo ID (passport or driver's license) maybe required for some applicants.

Please visit How To Certify Your Documents to find the most convenient method for certifying the ID copies.
