Important Information for Our Customers
As you may know, the Federal Government has requested the assistance of brokerages and other financial institutions in the fight to prevent the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities. Federal laws now require all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each individual or business who open an account.
What does this mean for you? Simply, when you open a new account at Univest Securities, Inc., you will be asked to provide your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We also ask to see your drivers license, passport or other identifying documents. For a commercial relationship, we request specific documents that will allow us to identify the business entity.
