Important Information about Procedures for New participants
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each participant in a transaction.
What this means for you: Before you are allowed to execute services (introductory or transactional) with Orchard, we will ask for your name, address, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We will also ask to see certain information relating to your principals, ownership structure, and related supporting documentation.
