PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE CONTINUING TO OUR NEW ACCOUNT LINK ON THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE. Notice Regarding Anti-Money Laundering In October 2001, the President of the United States signed into law the Patriot Act. The Patriot act provides the United States Government with additional tools to fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities. As a result, financial institutions like King Commodities are required to adopt and enforce anti-money laundering policies and procedures that include a customer identification program. As part of King Commodities’ anti-money laundering policies and procedures, King Commodities requires its customers to provide certain documents that will assist King Commodities and its clearing brokers in verifying your true identity. Therefore, at a minimum, when opening a trading account with King Commodities, King Commodities will ask for your name, address, date of birth and in many cases depending on the clearing FCM AML requirements, documentation to support your identity such as a current government issued passport or driver’s license and in some cases, a current utility bill. If King Commodities is unable to obtain reasonable identification verification, King Commodities reserves the right to request additional documentation and possibly deny your account.
