Client Acceptance Policy

Quick, online sign-up process for residents of 'fast-tracked' countries

Customers resident in the 'fast-tracked' countries listed below can get started quickly with metal purchases thanks to our fast-buying process. It takes only a few minutes to establish the Holding online and the Holding can be funded immediately to purchase metal.

The verification documents (scanned copies of photo ID and a bank document) are to be uploaded within 15 days of funding the Holding. Once the Holding is verified, customers can upgrade to a Full Holding without charge. An overview of the Holding types and services can be found in the table below.

If the required documents are not provided within fifteen (15) days after the Holding was funded, we are required to return the funds and therefore may need to sell any metal held. Trading profits will be foregone and trading losses may be incurred. An administration fee applies for the unwinding process and the Holding will be closed.

Residents in other countries

Residents in other countries can also open their Holding online. The Holding can be funded after the verification process is completed. The required documents are to be submitted by postal mail to our office. This also applies to customers in 'fast-tracked' countries who upgrade their Basic Holding to a Full Holding. Canadian, US, and UK residents can complete the application for a Full Holding online using the identity verification service provided by Equifax. Residents of Germany can use Postident. We will contact you after receiving your documents.
