The following is important information for investors about procedures for opening a new account:
To assist the government in its effort to fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal laws require Cadaret, Grant to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each individual or entity that opens an account. These procedures are mandated by section 326 of the U.S. Patriot Act of 2001.
When you open an account as an investor, Cadaret, Grant will ask you to provide your name, address, date of birth, and government-issued identification documents, such as a driver’s license, passport, or documents with a photograph that will allow us to identify you. For certain entities, such as trusts, estates, corporations, partnerships, or other organizations, identifying documentation is also required.
The U.S. Department of the Treasury, Securities and Exchange Commission, and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority rules also require you to provide additional information, such as your net worth, annual income, occupation, employment information, investment experience and objectives, and risk tolerance. Helpful information about these terms is available on this Web site, under “Investors.”
