Before issuing any Funded Accounts or any type of payout to the client related to successfully completing one of our programs, we require that you verify your ID and pass our KYC/AML screening. For 99% of people, this will never be an issue, and the check will take no more than 5 minutes.

Below are the steps required to complete the KYC/AML screening:

Upon successfully completing the evaluation phase of any of our programs, you may begin the verification process by heading to "My Profile" located in the Trade Hub, and selecting "Start Now" under the KYC Submission toggle.

SumSub Process:

  1. You will be asked to submit the following forms of ID:

    1. Valid photo ID (expiry date no more than 14 days out) , this includes:

      1. Driver's License

      2. Passport

      3. ID Card

    2. Proof of address within the last 60 days, this includes:

      1. Bank statements

      2. Utility bills

      3. Phone bills

    3. A selfie so that we can match your face to the one on your submitted photo ID

  2. Upon completing this verification step, if receiving a Funded Account, you will be sent the Customer Agreement for your signature to the email associated with your account. Once that is complete, you will receive your Funded Account within 3-9 days depending on the program selected and current volume.

It is important to be clear that we may not be able to fund you if you cannot pass the KYC verification process. If you believe you could have any issues passing the KYC/AML screening, please contact our live support at the bottom right of that page and they will assist you in potentially getting verified before signing up for any of our programs.

Please also note that for initial KYC/AML screening, when completing the SumSub submission process, connection to Virtual Private Networks ("VPN") and Virtual Private Servers ("VPS") are prohibited. If you are connected to a VPS or VPN when completing the KYC process, your account may not become funded and/or your funded account may be disabled and/or breached if you are discovered to have completed the KYC/AML process using a VPS or VPN. If you are in violation of this rule, please reach out to support to inquire about KYC/AML re-verification.
